    • I am a first year PhD student with a biotechnology and microbiology background. My research area is identifying factors that regulate the initiation of DNA replication in the model Gram-positive organism Bacillus subtilis. Apart from that, I love to travel and I am a food lover. Yummy! That's why I'm fat!

    • I am currently in my third year studying BSc Hons Human Genetics and I am particularly keen on cell cycle and it's regulation. My main hobbies are listening to music and watching documentaries on TV. I have an urge to learn new things and give everything a different perspective. With iGEM I can widen the spectrum of my skills and can learn new techniques. My main role in the team is to do research on the genetics of B. subtilis.
