Research description

The main focus of my research is to understand how genetic factors contribute to the etiology of neurodevelopmental disorders (NDDs) and how these factors translate into biological pathways affecting brain development. In specific projects, we are also aiming to investigate how genetic factors can be used to predict outcome of treatment and training that are used to help individuals with NDDs.

To answer these questions I’m using genome-wide techniques such as whole genome sequencing to identify genetic variation of all size ranges and analyze their consequences to genes, pathways and phenotypic outcomes with combination of bioinformatic and experimental approaches.
