I started as a physics teacher after my graduation from university but I always had in mind to become a scientist and if possible to combine that with teaching. Also, as I like biology it was always my goal as a scientist to apply physics to the study of biology. During my MSc and PhD research projects, both on plant physiology, I extented further my knowledge on plant sciences, namely plant physiology & biochemistry, plant anatomy and the experimental methods used in these disciplines. Over the last 6 years I have especialized on mathematical modelling of plant transport systems (membrane transport, phloem and xylem transport) for which I used Mathcad as my main tool for solving differential equations. Also, on the experimental level I have experience on isotope labelling, electrophysiology and the standard methods and equipment used in those fields.
