Biography

I have a PhD in molecular plant biology focusing on the molecular mechanisms of plant defense and stress acclimation. I have studied the cell signalling networks regulating plant survival under environmental stress conditions. After my PhD, I have been working with edible macroalgae. I am currently a post-doctoral researcher in a project that investigates the potential of the Baltic Sea macroalgae as food and feed ingredients.
