Consortia publications

Consortia work can lead us to important conclusions. Along my career, I have been part of the PCAWG consortium that has published the following articles in which the consortium is author:


My scientific expertise has lead me to several invitations to take part in the peer-review system that ensures the rigorous standards of the scientific process. In particular, I have reviewed articles for the following journals:

All stated reviews have been certified by Publons / Web of Science: D-7235-2018.
