My name is Eleonora, I studied Mathematics at the University of Cagliari, Italy.
I obtained my PhD in Medical Genetics at the Department of Biomedical Sciences of the University of Sassari, Italy, in 2015. I was involved in the SardiNIA project at the National Research Council in Cagliari; I worked in Serena Sanna’s group and in collaboration with Goncalo Abecasis of the University of Michigan where I spent more than two years as visiting PhD student.
I am very familiar with statistical genetics and in particular my expertise is on genetic mapping of complex traits and diseases by genotyping arrays and next-generation sequencing.
I joined Alexandre Reymond’s group on January 4th 2016 to work on copy number variations and their role in phenotypic diversity.
