My research is focused on childhood obesity, diabetes and puberty. It includes metabolic factors in body weight regulation and hypothalamic control of feeding circuits, genes involved in childhood obesity and diabetes, and post-craniopharyngioma obesity. On the field of puberty, I am working on treatment of precocious puberty and genes controlling the onset of puberty.
