I am currently a Post Doctoral fellow for the Sarwal lab (Department of Surgery at UCSF) and the Sirota lab (Computational Health Science at UCSF) working on kidney organ transplantation. I completed my PhD in Statistical Genetics at the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre in Spain jointly with the University of Liege in Belgium.

My work is focused on the development and application of advanced statistical methods for the integration of omics data. My research interest is based on the development of advanced statistical approaches to integrate omics and clinical/epidemiological data to better understand complex diseases. Now, I am involved in the analysis of Next Generation Sequencing data to better explain the rejection process of kidney transplants.
