Research interests

I’m currently studying a Masters in Bioinformatics at Pompeu Fabra University (UPF), in Barcelona. In January 2011 I started my MSc project on the discovery of new therapeutical strategies using interactomes associated to a disease, in which we integrate bioinformatic and chemoinformatic approaches.
