RESEARCH ASSOCIATE (POSTDOC)
Professional interests and goals: I am working on elucidating the gene regulatory networks involving phenylpropanoid pathway in maize. I identify protein-DNA interactions through DNA affinity purification (DAP) as well as Chromatin Immunoprecipitation (ChIP) techniques. I would like to combine phenotypic data, genetic information and molecular approaches to improve the quality of crops and fruits in the future.
General Interests: climbing mountains, cross-country ski, reading books.
