What is your current role? Tell us a bit about your line of research

I’m a postdoctoral fellow in the Murray lab at Harvard University. I’m broadly interested in genome evolution. In my research I study how cells evolve and respond to genetic perturbations and how these adaptive processes change fundamental aspects of cell biology.

What are you excited about in science communication?

To me, nature is a source of inspiration and investigating it through science provides me with constant excitement. In my opinion, science communication is a tool for sharing this excitement as widely as possible and hopefully inspire young students, colleagues and citizens through the wonder of science.  

Why did you choose to participate in the ASAPbio Fellows program?

I find preprints a revolutionary concept in scientific publishing. In addition to their effect in accelerating the exchange of ideas and discoveries, I believe their adoption will contribute to end some of the perverse incentives derived from the current publishing system. I joined the ASAPbio Fellow program as I want to play an active role in implementing what I believe to be a beneficial change for the scientific community at large.

Ask me about…

..my failures, for some genuine amusement.
