Photosynthesis…Photosynthesis never changes

October 2019 – Present: Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Southampton

2017-2019: Postdoctoral Researcher at the Ludwig-Maximilians University of Munich (Postdoctoral supervisor: Dario Leister), Munich, Germany

2013-2017: PhD in the Institute of Plant Biochemistry and Photosynthesis (PhD supervisor: Fernando P. Molina-Heredia) at the University of Seville, Spain

Research interests

I am interested in the photosynthetic mechanisms that regulates the electron flow. A better understanding of this mechanism will allow us to utilize this energy to power proteins with biotechnological applications, as the well-known cytochromes P450 enzymes.
