My research focuses on the regulation of biomolecular condensates in neuronal dendrites and its involvement on synaptic plasticity. I am also studying the gene expression variation control by lncRNAs during the cell fate determination of hES and iPS cells. Previously I was working on mammalian brain development and neurodevelopmental diseases using in utero gene transfer techniques.
