Hej! I'm a bioinformatics student, with research interests in molecular evolution. Thanks to my undergraduate project and mentors, I'm interested in studying the phylogenomics of marine eukaryotes particularly protists*. In addition to my primary research interests, I'm interested in learning more about 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 life sciences, I contribute my time to web development, outreach, and science events management. That's all for now. Before you browse, please note that I enjoy creating lists so that's what you will mainly find here.
