As an engineer turned biologist, my interest wavered from once being a part-time environmental biotechnologist to what I now prefer to call myself as-a fundamental biologist. Initial experiences piqued my curiosity to work with these inanimate looking life forms which not only feed us but also have the one of the most interesting physiology to cope up with different environmental factors. Yes, I am talking about plants.
I am a third year Ph.D. student at Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência, Portugal and work in plant genomics group with Dr. Jörg Becker. I am interested in the male germline development in flowering plants and how they respond to the female cues during their journey through the female tissues.
I love to travel and explore new places, reading about world history and currently have developed a new fascination I want to have some hands-on: being a YouTuber!
