Department of Immunology and the Diabetes Center
I graduated in exercise physiology and genetics focusing on clinical studies. During my postdoc, I moved from bedside to bench in a way to unveil molecular mechanisms of beige adipocytes in response to exercise. Particularly, I am investigating the effects of exercise in beige autophagy/mitophagy in HFD-induced obesity. Outside the lab I enjoy relax with family and friends, go restaurants, movies and play soccer.
Research Project Title: 
Unveiling the effects of physical exercise on beige autophagy/mitophagy in HFD-induced obesity
