My principal interests lie in the field of the myelin/neuron interactions involved in the myelin formation and also in dysmyelinating diseases and remyelination processes. I am also interested by the molecules and processes capable of modifying the state of neurons, encompassing degeneration, repulsion or growth. My goal is to achieve a greater understanding of issues surrounding myelin/neuron interaction. Furthermore, I intend to develop my academic skills by teaching at undergraduate level.
