Curriculum Vitae

Plant Biologist with biochemistry and molecular biology background, I joined from the 1st of January 2015 Dr. Anna Kärkönen´s group (Lignin Biosynthesis group, University of Helsinki) where I continue my focus on the role of the reactive oxygen species in plants and more particularly on the role of the Respiratory Burst Oxidase Homologues (RBOH) during the lignin biosynthesis in spruce.

This work is supported by Academy of Finland.


Little story about my previous research experience:

After my PhD, conducted in Prof. David Wendehenne´s group  (University of Burgundy, Dijon, France) focused on the study of the action mechanism of the sulfated laminarin, an inducer of resistance against Plasmopara viticola in grapevine.

From july 2009 until  beginning 2015, I joined the ROS Signaling group, directed by Prof. Jaakko Kangasjärvi, where my research project was focused on the understanding of the functional role of the Cysteine-rich Receptor Like Kinase (CRKs) in ROS signalling in Arabidopsis thaliana. This work has started within the  PROSIG consortium  (ERA-PG project), where we have been collaborating with 4 different european research groups based in UK (Dr. Silke Robatzek), Danemark (Dr. David Collinge), The Netherlands (Dr. Jan Willem Borst), and in Poland (Prof. Stanislaw Karpinski).

I obtained in 2010 a 3 year Academy of Finland"s Post-doctoral research grant (Decision #140187) allowing me to continue my exciting study on the CRKs in Arabidopsis thaliana.
