I am a PostDoc working on yeast metabolomics. During my PhD I studied the interplay between metabolism, cell cycle and signalling, mainly focusing on the Snf1/AMPK pathway. I am currently interested in studying metabolic rewiring caused by different nutrients, generating high-throughput data suitable for modelling.
I am a PhD student working the group of Zoya Ignatova. Cellular and extracellular changes like crowding and osmotic stress conditions play a major role in protein aggregation. A change in the cytoplasmic composition is the result of an interplay between high osmotic pressures outside the cell volume and the cellular response to it in terms of uptake of K+ and secondary organic osmolytes. My research focuses on elucidating the role of natural osmolytes (known also as chemical chaperones or compatible

My research interest is in the modeling of translation. Connecting various processes in translation, we can investigate the impact of different factors on protein biosynthesis and biogenesis in genome-wide scale. This may reveal various general mechanisms on control level of gene expression and folding efficiency regulation in different growth conditions.

The focus of our research is the protein biogenesis and how stress-related factors modulate it. Protein biogenesis in general comprises various processes, i.e., translation, protein folding, each of which responds differently to external stress stimuli. Using systems biology approaches we seek to understand the interplay between these processes in fine-tuning the protein pattern and proteins’ abundance under osmotic stress conditions.
