I'm a veterinarian with a background in research within animal genetics. I have a master's degree in this field, where my previous work focused on exploring genetic traits that affect sporting performance in racing horses of different breeds. My most recent experience and my role in Catherine Legrands's group is that of a laboratory engineer with main focus on molecular biology and genetic studies.
I assist all members of the group in developing laboratory protocols and am involved in several projects related to molecular characterization of picophytoplankton and algae species. I also have a role in developing work routines and safety protocols for our laboratories.
