Right now I am involving as lab technician in two projects:
1/ Identification of Phytophthora ssp attacking the forest trees in Sweden
2/ Improving Ash cloning against ash die back

Generally I enjoy working in the lab with DNA extraction, running PCR and preparing samples for sequencing. I have very strong background in plant genetic resources biodiversity and conservation, as well I am interesting in breeding to improve the plant materials against noxious diseases using different tools to understand the heritability of susceptibility and resistance, such as population genetics and quantitative genetics. In the future I am so eager to go deeper for well understanding toward genomic selection.
