I did my PhD at the University of Barcelona (Spain) working on comparative genomics of unicellular relatives of animals with Prof. IƱaki Ruiz-Trillo. Then I trained as a postdoc in the laboratory of Prof. Ryan Lister at The University of Western Australia, working on comparative epigenomics of various organisms, from dinoflagellates to humans. From January 2020 I lead my own group at Queen Mary University of London, focusing on the evolution of epigenomes, transposable elements and everything in between. I obtained a prestigious ERC Starting Grant in 2020 to develop my research line on eukaryotic epigenomics.
