Former members of the team

Published on 17 May 2019
Xiaoye Guo
Xiaoye joined the team (November 2018-April 2019) as a fellow of China Scholarship Council. She is a master 2 student in the Center for Microalgal Biotechnology and Biofuels, Institute of Hydrobiology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Wuhan, China, under the supervision of Prof. Danxiang Han. During her stay in the lab she aimed to explore the function and regulation of membrane lipids in photosynthetic microalgae, and the correlation between dynamics of galactolipids and photoprotective mechanisms.

Marius Arend
Master 2 exchange student (September to December 2018). Marius is a master student on Bioinformatics of University of Potsdam, Germany. He worked for three months on the role of acetate on the metabolome and on genome-wide gene expression in Chlamydomonas

Laura Turchi
Master 1 student, Plant-Int Master program, February-Mars 2019. Laura holds a bachelor’s degree in Biological Sciences at the University of Bologna, and is currently following the Plant-Int master program in plant molecular biology between the University of Milan (Italy) and University of Grenoble-Alpes (France). She did her first internship of Plant-Int in the “Sensing and Signalling in Microalgae” team of LPCV, where she explored the link between phototaxis and photoprotection.

Angeliki Tsichla
Research Engineer (2018). Angeliki is a Chemist holding a PhD in Industrial Chemistry from the RWTH Aachen University, Germany. During her stay in LPCV she worked on the link between carbon metabolism and photoprotection as well as on the role of light quality on gene expression and carbon partitioning.

Aguila Ruiz Sola
Post-doc (2016-2018). Aguila got her PhD in plant molecular biology from CRAG, Barcelona, Spain. After a post-doc in ETH Zurich she joined LPCV to work on the link between carbon metabolism and photoprotection and on the phototropin-dependent signaling in Chlamydomonas. She is now following a post-doc in the group of Elena Monte in CRAG, Barcelona.
