Interests

Studying the genetics basis of obesity, with focus on neuroendocrine genes in brain neurons. This offers the chance to better understand the mechanisms of appetite control and energy balance in the CNS. My PhD focus will be on the genetics of obesity in canine subjects. Due to the extensive artificial breeding history of dog populations, canine genomic architecture offers a unique opportunity to highlight the genetic underpinnings of obesogenic traits in mammals.
