Biography

PhD student working on developing orthogonal transcription and translation systems and the augmentation of complex cellular machinery with new functionalities.

Professional interests outside of synthetic biology include biosecurity, where I’m currently a member of the Biosafety and Biosecurity committee for the international iGEM competition.

I am a big advocate for the accessibility of synthetic biology, which is why I am a part of the organising committee for the international GOGEC competition: A competition that aims to provide an open space for university students to present their synthetic biology related work to the rest of the world - without being limited by having to pay participation fees.
