Academic interests

I started my PhD in September 2019 in the research groups of Rafal Ciosk and Pål Falnes. During my PhD, I will characterize novel molecular mechanisms that regulate translation with an emphasis on the role of methyltransferases in translation. I am using the nematode C. elegans as an experimental model to elucidate how methylation of translation factors affects biological processes under various conditions. 


2019 - now   PhD at the department of Biosciences, University of Oslo, Norway. 

2016 - 2018  Master in Molecular Biology at the department of Biosciences, University of Oslo, Norway. 

2012 - 2016  Bachelor in Biology and Medical Laboratory Research at the department of Science and Technology, University of Applied Sciences Leiden, The Netherlands.
