Brief bio: I was interested in Biology since my childhood, and I was lucky enough to become a Biologist. During my master’s degree I started working on microalgae with Dr. Flemetakis and Dr. Roussis, specifically studying oxidative stress in C. reinhardtii with emphasis in Selenium Binding Protein. Recently I began studying several microalgal strains comparing their molecular and biochemical responses to oxidative stress.
