Summary

 

Summary

I am a PhD student in Dr. Samraat Pawar's group, looking at the biological limits of thermal adaptation and acclimation of ectotherm species. To this end, I am trying to understand the macroevolution of key thermal response traits and their potential trade-offs. Another project that I am working on concerns the comparison of coevolution networks of proteins associated with thermal adaptation among diverse species.

As to my background, I hold a BSc in Molecular Biology and Genetics (Democritus University of Thrace, Greece, 2012) and a MRes in Biodiversity Informatics and Genomics (Imperial College London, 2014).
