I obtained my MSc degree in Molecular Immunology at the Medical University of Gdansk in Poland. During my Master’s I was lucky to complete an internship at NIMR in the lab of Dr. Veni Papayannopoulos. Both my Master’s project and internship were focused on innate immunity.
Given a long-standing interest in crosstalk between the immune and metabolic systems and their fundamental requirements for survival, I was excited to join the Gould lab in 2014. My current work as a PhD student investigates the effects of different dietary regimes on the development and metabolism of Drosophila. I am particularly interested in lipid metabolism.
