    Collapse Overview
    I am a molecular and genomics neuroscientist using experimental and computational approaches to understand how alterations in individual cells affect brain function in aging and disease. Given the intricate spatial wiring of our brain, my research focuses on identifying molecular changes in individual cells with spatial context integrating single-cell and spatial transcriptomics.
    My research experience spans the analysis of postmortem brain samples, in vivo and in vitro disease modeling studies, and the analysis of bulk, single-cell, and spatial transcriptomics data. I am skilled in interpreting multi-omics data to discover biological mechanisms, with solid training in R programming, data visualization, and statistical tests. My ultimate goal is to contribute to developing disease-modifying therapeutic interventions.

    Throughout my diverse professional journey, I have worked independently and collaboratively in different countries, including Peru, Canada, the USA, and Japan. I have established a vast network and mentored students from various nationalities and backgrounds.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
