Senior Project Manager
I’m a senior project manager in the Project Management Team within the Genomics Pipelines Group and am primarily in charge of ensuring efficient high-throughput NGS project delivery.
I’m an entomologist by training, specializing in molecular genetics of hemipteran agricultural pests.
Before joining EI, I completed my PhD at the Israeli Agricultural Research Organisation and Hebrew University studying interactions between bacteria, virus and insect during transmission of plant viruses by insects.
After which I came to the UK as a Royal Society fellow at the John Innes Centre to study a plant pathogenic bacteria transmitted by insects.
