I am an undergraduate student in the Department of Molecular Biology & Biochemistry and am interested in laboratory work related to vaccine research. The peculiarities of viruses like HIV and influenza have been attracting tremendous attention from researchers and there are many studies trying to make a breakthrough in the understanding and application of immune defenses against these viruses. I am keen to learn more about this field and contribute to it.

Other Interests

I love travelling and discovering cities that I am not familiar with. I really enjoy cooking and trying new recipes at home. I am also crazy about jigsaw puzzles (especially 1000/2000-piece puzzles) and can spend many hours playing!
