Brief bio: During my degree studies I was very interested in all branches of biology, but when I started studying subjects related to molecular and cellular biology, I was really fascinated. My research interests led me to the Molecular Biology Lab of the UNL where I am studying the regulation of gene expression in plants, particularly TCP transcription factors and their functions. I also participate in teaching undergraduate students in Biotechnology and Biochemistry. I plan to finish my PhD studies during the next year with the hope of contributing to the field of plant molecular biology and sharing my knowledge with the society.
