I am a molecular biologist with extensive experience in the fields of cell biology, biochemistry and structural biology, an expert with complete workflows from DNA design to protein structure elucidation and validation by in vivo and in vitro approaches. I have a long-standing interest in the mechanistic aspects of intranuclear trafficking and the regulation of nucleo-cytoplasmic transport of proteins and ribonucleoproteins. Currently, I am interested in the structural aspects of viral entry through the Nuclear Pore Complex.
