Biography

Present position:

2014- : Research Associate, the University of Manchester, Faculty of Life Sciences, Oxford Road, Manchester M13 9PL, UK

I studied biology at the University of Ljubljana and did my PhD on environmental dependence of mutation rate in bacteria Escherichia coli. After my PhD I spent few years outside academia and then in 2011 joined Chris Knight group at the University of Manchester. in 2012 I co-discovered the density-associated mutation rate plasticity in bacteria. Since then I have been pursuing this exciting novel phenomenon in both bacteria and yeast through transcriptome analysis, experimental evolution, whole-genome analysis and assaying mutation rates in cells with different genetic backgrounds growing in a variety of environments.
