    I am interested in metabolic diseases and how lifestyle interventions can have an impact on them, focusing on the mechanisms regulating energy metabolism. I have previously investigated at IDIBAPS the integration of metabolic responses regulating energy metabolism and glucose homeostasis in diet-induced obese murine model upon lifestyle intervention. I joined Joslin Diabetes Center to investigate whether the metabolic disruptions in stem cells from T2D patients were cell-autonomous. In line with my intention to study lifestyle interventions, I joined the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Basic Metabolic Research to perform research in exercise physiology. 

    Fields of interest

    Secretomics; Exercise physiology; Organ cross-talk; Energy metabolism; Metabolic Diseases; Type II Diabetes
