MD, Geneticist,
Ph.D. student

My PhD project aims at characterizing the cognitive, behavioral, neuroimaging and molecular effects of the 15q11.2 deletion and duplication as well as other related genetic variants. The PhD project is part of an international collaboration so during my studies I will be working in Denmark at the Department of Clinical Genetics, Odense University Hospital, the University of Southern Denmark and in the laboratory of Dr. Sébastien Jacquemont at CHU St. Justine, Montreal, Canada.
