Chemistry always intrigued me for its applicability in different fields of science. Getting analytical chemistry as a starting point, my research interests expanded towards organic synthesis and analysis in my BSc, while a research study on targeted metabolomics in human plasma was carried out during my MSc. All these experiences gave me the opportunity to get valuable knowledge in chromatographic and spectrometric techniques for the analysis of small molecules that I had the opportunity to put into practice working for one year as an Analytical R&D scientist. Furthermore my continuous interest for the biochemistry background in all of the projects that I have taken over along with my previous knowledge and experience motivated me to expand my field of expertise in proteomics.
In the frame of this PhD position my main goal is to apply my knowledge in biochemistry and widen the ‘’omics’’ technology from metabolomics to proteomics in ancient proteins for the preservation of cultural heritage as a final application. I strongly believe that my background in chemistry as well as and my previous research experiences could be an asset for the PhD program.
