Background and activities

I did my Bachelors and Masters of Technology in Biotechnology with a focus on plant  tissue culture and plant genomics. I followed this up with the Erasmus Mundus Masters of Bioethics in 2015. During this course I was introduced to the prominent issues in biomedical ethics. I also developed a curiosity in the dual use and/or misuse of technology which became the topic of my thesis. Now, I am a part of the DrugLogics team which is working towards a well curated and responsibly constructed Knowledge Commons for Gene Regulation. Here, I am using my background in biotechnology and bioethics to work towards my doctoral dissertation which focusses on the ethical issues arising from this construction.
