Brief bio: I was born and grew up in Indonesia as a daughter of two plant scientists. I naturally developed an interest to study plant responses to environmental changes. I obtained a Bachelor degree in Agriculture (2012) and Master degree in Plant Breeding (2014) from Gadjah Mada University, Yogyakarta – Indonesia. On October 2015, I start my scientific journey as a PhD student in PlantLab (Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies, Italy) and graduated in March 2019. My PhD project concerned the interplay of the circadian clock, light, and sugars on gibberellin (GA) biosynthesis. The purpose of this study is to elucidate the temporal dynamics of GA biosynthesis and create a mechanistic understanding of growth control via GAs. Currently, I am a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Glasgow, on a mission to investigate the post-transcriptional gene regulation in plants under drought stress.
