Scientific Interests

The main topic of my research is the study of human proteins involved in metabolic conformational diseases, which become misfolded and/or inactive due to mutations or adverse cellular conditions. In particular, one of my current interest is related to understanding mitochondria regulation by non-enzymatic Post-Translational Modifications (PTMs) and their impact in metabolic disorders. To undertake our goals, we use a complementary set of tools, ranging from biochemical and molecular biology to biophysical, spectroscopic and proteomics techniques.
