Previous Appointments:

M.Eng. Biotechnology, Technical University of Denmark, 2018
B.Eng. Biotechnology, Wroclaw University of Science and Technology 2016

Interests: synthetic biology, genetic circuits, industrial biotechnology


My Ph.D. is a part of the SynCrop project (Synthetic Circuits for Robust Orthogonal Production). My project is focused on the development of modular synthetic genetic circuits for the production of compounds of industrial interest. I aim to develop a toolkit of sensors and degradation machinery to enable the control of metabolic pathways. In addition, I will use mathematical modelling to better understand the target levels of protein that optimise production and yields.
