About me

 

I'm a Canadian cell and molecular biologist interested in catabolic processes, specifically autophagy ("self-eating") and programmed cell death (PCD). After completing my PhD studies at Dalhousie University (Canada) under the supervision of Dr. Arunika Gunawardena, I started a Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) Postdoctoral Fellowship in Sweden. Under the supervision of Dr. Alyona Minina and Dr. Peter Bozhkov I have been studying autophagy, developing new tools and strategies to manipulate and further unravel this critical biochemical pathway in plants. I am dedicated to understand how autophagy can be leveraged for the improvement of agriculture and human health. In addition to my research, I am passionate about volunteer work with a focus on science communication and public outreach.
