Brief-Bio: After completing my M.Sc. in the field of epigenetics in murine neuronal development, I joined the lab of Dr. Reimo Zoschke for my PhD in 2016. Here, I focus on translational regulation in chloroplasts of vascular plants. Especially, I am interested in translational responses in light acclimation and finding unique features of plastid translation.
