Personal profile


My background is in Physics focused on Soft Matter and Neutron Scattering technique.

I joined to Virus Biophysics Group at the Faculty of Medicine, to study the apparent phase structural reorganisation of viral genome inside capsids of virus by using scattering techniques, as well as, performing data analysis.

Our research, also, have been focused on account for the effectivity of capsid attachment to cell nuclei prior to genome ejection, which initiates the viral infection and replication processes into the lytic life cycle of a virus. On other side, another challenge that our lab has, is the time-tracking of growing of viral genome inside cell's nucleus in order to follow up how the DNA is replicating at certain time points post infection.

The Virus Biophysics Lab currently is moving on to be involved into research of gen therapy through Adeno-Associated -Virus (AAV) in order to help with treatment of some diseases.
