The following people constitute the Editorial Board of Academic Editors for PeerJ. These active academics are the Editors who seek peer reviewers, evaluate their responses, and make editorial decisions on each submission to the journal. We will continue to add to the board of Academic Editors and are seeking qualified and diverse academics who share our vision.
After completing my training as a physician, I enrolled in a Ph.D. program to become a biomedical researcher. My doctoral training, in the broad field of biochemistry, and cell and molecular biology, focused on mechanisms of glycosylation, which is altered in diseases such as cancer and neuromuscular dystrophy. My current research focus is on microRNAs, tumor micro-environment and RNA editing.

The lab investigates how we experience, simulate, understand and remember information from the world around us. More specifically we investigate the phenomenology, mechanisms and neural basis of mental imagery, working memory, decision-making, visual perception, learning and the clinical applications for all these processes. We currently utilise behavioural methods, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), all with human subjects.

Previously Royal Society University Research Fellow at Kings College London, after postdocs at the University of York, UCSF, San Francisco, and Kings College London. PhD at University College London and Undergraduate Degree at University of York. I am an editor at Methods, and a member of the Royal Microscopical Society (member of Council).
I earned a PhD in development working with Drosophila in Ginés Morata laboratory in Madrid and later moved to flower development using another model system, Arabidopsis, in the Marty Yanofsky laboratory at UCSD, La Jolla, CA. Currently, I am an ICREA Research Professor at CRAG (Centre for Research in Agricultural Genomics) located in Barcelona, Spain. I am very interested in the control of flowering and how other plant developmental processes are regulated by my favorite genes, TEMPRANILLO.
