“R-loops have been shown to be important in several cellular processes and dysregulation of R-loops was linked to multiple human diseases. However, there is still a lot to be discovered about the physiological roles of R-loops and their regulation. I am therefore excited to work in such a rapidly evolving field of research.”

I want to explore the regulation of nuclear and cytoplasmic RNA-DNA hybrids. To this end, I am going to use proteomics approaches to study R-loops as well as R-loop-derived RNA-DNA hybrids. I further want to investigate the role of these RNA-DNA hybrids in inflammatory signaling using RNA-DNA proximity proteomics.

I enjoy trekking, bouldering, and amateur astronomy.
