Hej! I'm a graduate student, in bioinformatics, with research interests in molecular evolution. Thanks to my honours project and undergraduate supervisor, I'm interested in studying the (evolutionary) genomics of marine eukaryotes particularly protists*. In addition to my primary research interests, I'm interested in transposable elements (excluding retrotransposons, just kidding!) and sequencing methods particularly nanopore sequencing.
*A few of my favourite publications that developed my interest in protists:
- The Holozoan Capsaspora owczarzaki Possesses a Diverse Complement of Active Transposable Element Families
- Premetazoan genome evolution and the regulation of cell differentiation in the choanoflagellate Salpingoeca rosetta
- The rosetteless gene controls development in the choanoflagellate S. rosetta
Besides science, I'm interested in front-end web development, web-content management, and reviewing mobile apps particularly games (in terms of UI/UX). That's all for now. Before you browse, please note that I enjoy creating lists so that's what you will mainly find here.
