Biography:

Alexandra Peregrina Lavín holds a doctoral degree in Fundamental and Systems Biology obtained from the University of Granada (Spain) in 2017. Currently, she is a postdoctoral researcher at ITQB NOVA (Oeiras, Portugal) working in the areas of Natural Sciences and Engineering & Technology, with emphasis on Microbiology, Molecular Biology, Synthetic Biology, Environmental Biotechnology and Bioplastics. During her professional activities, she interacted with many collaborators, being co-author of 6 scientific papers, and published in prestigious peer-reviewed journals of high impact. She reached a very good citation index (h-index 5, 138 citations), promoting the extension of skills for the study of Sinorhizobium meliloti, small non-coding RNAs (sRNAs), RNA chaperones and ribonucleases. As a Postdoc, she was awarded or participated in a large number of competitive research grants and projects such as the EmPowerPutida consortium in the frame of H2020. This resulted in the gain of new knowledge for a new microorganism, Pseudomonas putida, that has been translated in a research article in the emerging field of Synthetic Biology. In 2019, she was awarded with an individual fellowship of the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA-IF-EF-ST) for the production of bioplastics from microorganisms, as sustainable alternative to petrol-based plastics. Currently, she continues developing her scientific career and skills through the teaching in a Master and PhD program with international students from different scientific educational backgrounds, in addition to the supervision of a MSc Student. She has been Jury member of Master thesis, and took part in International events with scientific relevance as participant and/or organizer. To this day, she was able to communicate and share her projects to a broad audience but also to other scientists, specialized on the same or different topics, raising awareness of science-related topics.
