Research Interests

His research focuses on understanding the cellular and molecular mechanisms of neurodevelopment, focusing on the process of generating neurons during fetal development or neurogenesis. In this context, he has obtained funding from national and international agencies and has trained numerous undergraduate and graduate students, as well as training post-doctoral fellows. Currently, his research group is focused on two lines of research: (i) understanding the cellular mechanisms underlying alterations in the neurogenic process and, consequently, neurodevelopmental disorders; and (ii) study the effects of maternal stress during pregnancy (prenatal stress) on fetal neurodevelopment and its postnatal consequences
