A Bit About Me

Ever since I heard about the 'golden rice' for the first time, I became enchanted by the possibility of how we can use plants to help humanity. This is what led me to study Genetics and Bioengineering. Later on during my education, I fell in love with the epigenetics and its immense potential to regulate all aspects of (plant) life.

My favorite things are: science, politics and outdoor sports (not necessarily always in that order). Moreover, my PhD in Spain helped me realize that (besides tapas and vermouth) I love social activism. This is why I participate in actions promoting science among kids and equality of women in science.
