My academic interests are in the the area of developmental biology and cell biology. As a plant biologist, my work focuses on transcriptomics, developmental biology and evo-devo of the brown alga, Dictyota dichotoma, an excellent model to study fertilization biology and the first asymmetric cell division of the zygote.
I am currently post-doc (UGent) in the Phycology Research Group of Ghent University.
