Cristina received her Masters in Mathematics from the University of Cambridge and her PhD in statistics from the University of Milan-Bicocca where she specialised in statistical genetics. She joined the Department of Twin Research and Genetic Epidemiology in 2011.
Cristina’s research focuses on identifying novel molecular markers associated with age and age-related diseases, particularly cardiometabolic disorders. She uses metabolomics in conjunction with several other “omics” datasets.
More recently, Cristina has also focused on the role of the gut microbiome in weight loss and/or gain and other metabolic syndrome related traits.
