About me

I aim to employ, to the best of my ability, my knowledge and soft skills in cell and molecular biology, biochemistry, bioinformatics and nanotechnology, acquired during both my Bachelor and Master degrees, in a multidisciplinary approach towards developing novel biomimetic affinity reagents targeting the current pandemic virus, SARS-CoV-2. Therefore, potentially facilitating diagnosis and vaccine production, whilst also gaining experience in bioengineering and bioseparations.
