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

I am currently a fourth-year PhD student specializing in plant epigenetics, with a focus on the study of histone H3 variants in Arabidopsis. My research centers on understanding how stress responses drive epigenetic changes and subsequently alter the chromatin landscape of genes involved in these responses. Through my work, I aim to elucidate the mechanisms by which plants adapt to environmental challenges at the epigenetic level.

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

I did it as a personal commitment to a more engaging and transparent science community, aligning with the belief that open communication and collaboration are essential for advancing research.

What are you excited about in science communication?

Open-access platforms are revolutionizing the sharing and accessibility of scientific research, engaging a broader audience and reconnecting the scientific community to its foundational goal of contributing to a better world through knowledge, rather than financial gain.

Ask me about….

I am a huge fan of indie and classic films, I enjoy not only the process of watching them but also reading/writing about movies. I also enjoy novels and essays with a deep focus on human behaviour, politics and feminism. Watching stand-up comedy and following baking pastries are also top my list of favorite things to do.
