Summary

I have a background in biology (BSc, MSc, PhD to be concluded in Oct 2017), with experience in different biology areas (mainly bioinformatics and molecular biology). I have some peer-reviewed scientific papers and several conference presentations and participations. I like to work in a team environment, and I am a highly adaptive person that worked in different institutes and lived in different countries. In recent years, I have been working in molecular ecology towards understanding biodiversity from a genetic point of view.
