Personal profile

Research interests

I am specialized as a biomedical scientist and have extensive experience in metabolism, aging, and genetics in C. elegans. I was awarded an AMC PhD scholarship to pursue my PhD thesis, focusing on the metabolic control of aging in C. elegans, and earned my PhD degree in the fall of 2018 at the University of Amsterdam in the Netherlands. I continued my research on mitochondrial stress response and its role in metabolism and aging, under the supervision of prof. Johan Auwerx (EPFL, Switzerland) and supported by a post-doctoral fellowship (2019 Accelerator price winner). During the 3.5-year postdoc training, I initiated several projects focused on the role of lysosomes and their functions in stress responses and longevity. In the summer of 2022, I moved back to the Netherlands and am currently an Assistant Professor at the Amsterdam UMC - Location AMC. My research focuses on lysosomes, lipids, and aging, as well as translational projects that can benefit patients with lysosome disorders.
