I've always been fascinated by how different human beings can be due to the variances in their genome, so I focused my career in genetics. During my career, I had the chance to work in molecular genetics both in clinics and research. Since, I was very curious about bioinformatics I decided to work analyzing data from NGS technologies at CBMSO, where I did my phD. Now, I work as a bioinformatics technician in the UEB of VHIR. Here, I offer bioinformatics support to clinic researchers and I have the opportunity to grow professionally every day.
