I obtained a PhD in immunology at the University of Barcelona, Spain, and worked for several years on gene regulation on the immune system at the Babraham Institute, UK. I joined Chris Wallace's group at the BSU in January 2017 to apply statistical and computational methods for further understanding causes of autoimmune diseases.
