Dr Cecilia D'Angelo is Senior Research Fellow within Ocean and Earth Science, National Oceanography Centre Southampton at the University of Southampton.
I am Senior Research Fellow in the Coral Reef Laboratory at the University of Southampton (UK). I am fascinated by a broad range of aspects of reef coral biology and I am applying molecular techniques including genomic and lipidomic approaches to understand their physiological response to stress.
My scientific career began at the National University in Rosario (Argentina) where I studied Biotechnology and obtained my Diploma in the area of Biophysics in the Department of Biological Chemistry (Faculty of Biochemical and Pharmaceutical Sciences), analysing the effects of bicarbonate on the energetic metabolism of mitochondria.
I obtained my PhD with Distinction from the Department of Molecular and Developmental Biology of Plants at the University of Münster (Germany) working with Prof. J. Kudla on the "Functional Analysis of Calcineurin B-like Proteins and their Interacting Protein Kinases in Abiotic Stress Responses” (PhD Thesis Grade: Summa cum Laude).
I further pursued my interest in molecular stress physiology as postdoctoral researcher in the Department of General Zoology and Endocrinology at the University of Ulm (Germany) focussing on the molecular mechanisms of photoprotection in reef corals.
