My current research interest is in child health and rheumatology. More specifically, I am interested in the role of genetics in the development of rheumatic diseases (like systemic lupus erythematosus, arthritis in children, vasculitis); the impact of rheumatic diseases in the development of the child, in the family and in the community; and current and future treatment options.
