Research Interest:
The way we look at Repeated Elements (REs) in the mammalian genome has radically changed in recent years, switching from junk to fundamental players of biological processes. 
My research line is currently focused on elucidating the extent and the role of de novo retrotransposition in the human brain in normal and pathological conditions.
