Group Leader

I combine systems biology tools with microscopy, neurobiology, physiology and bioinformatics to map gene regulatory networks involved in the transcriptional regulation of behaviour using Drosophila as primary model organism. I focus on regulatory peptides such as neuropeptides and peptide hormones as they play a key role in the communications between the brain and the periphery and many of these peptides are involved in the regulation of behaviour.
