performed data analysis of epigenomic profilesepigenome-wide association studies linking gluco-psycho-social parameters to disease and conduct trajectories. I am co-first and corresponding author of "Genome-wide methylation and gene expression changes in newborn rats following maternal protein restriction and reversal by folic acid", PMID: 24391732, doi: 10.1371/journal.pone.0082989. This work provides direct evidence of genome-wide epigenetic alterations underpinning the foetal programming phenomenon. I am unique author of the review "Bioinformatics applied to gene transcription regulation", PMID: 22723668, doi: 10.1530/JME-12-0060. I have recently obtained the Association for Project Management’s Introductory Certificate (The APM Project Fundamentals Qualification, March 2016).
