I am interested in pursuing epidemiological research on psycho-immunology and the influence of environmental and psychosocial factors on the expression of genes responsible for mental illness, such as bipolar, depression, schizophrenia, etc. I am also interested in tracing relationships between child maltreatment/abuse/trauma and correlated psychopathologies in later life.
Outside of GREMAP:
I spend my spare time with my family — hiking and traveling, cooking together and playing games. I also enjoy practicing and teaching yoga.
