    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview
    My work is focused on genetics of neuropsychiatric disorders, aimed to generate knowledge with clinical usability from genetics and genomics. Deep phenotyping, Genome-Wide Association Studies (GWAS), gene expression eQTL analyses and study of gene-environment interactions are among the methods I use to discover novel associations. My work with the Bipolar and Schizophrenia Network on Intermediate Phenotypes (B-SNIP) aims to discover genetic factors associated with sub-phenotypes of psychotic disorders.
