He is working within the PATHSENSE (Pathogen Sensing) project, which focuses on understanding a highly sophisticated but poorly understood sensory organelle called the “stressosome” in Listeria monocytogenes.
“I decided to challenge myself by participating the sponsorship team of PhD-day organization because this is the place where I can meet people from different backgrounds and cultures, join pragmatic activities, and learn useful things from PhD fellows at RUG”
