- PI group: Prof. Joanna Poulton
I'm currently a first-year DPhil student affiliated with the Nuffield Department of Women's and Reproductive Health. I work under the esteemed guidance of Prof. Joanna Poulton, and my research is aimed at elucidating the mysteries in driving mtDNA segregation.
I hold a Master’s degree in Reproductive Science and have done several research projects on reproductive health and genetics. During the three years of residential training, I stepped into the world of mitochondrial genetics—a realm where scientific curiosity meets a philanthropic heart, and where the quest to assist families affected by mitochondrial diseases is a lifelong mission. My path led me to the field of reproductive genetics, where I saw not just a potential chance, but a calling.
My goal extends beyond academia; it's a commitment to extend my career as a reproductive geneticist, armed with a deep understanding and expertise in mitochondrial genetics. I will embark on this journey to unravel the mysteries of mitochondria and make a lasting impact on the lives of those affected by mitochondrial diseases.
