Responsibilities

Teaching laboratory
As the person in charge of the teaching laboratory, I help professors and teaching assistants in the planning and preparation of the lab work for all the botany courses given at the IRBV.

In vitro culture laboratory
As the person in charge of the in vitro culture laboratory, a facility used by the IRBV researchers and graduate students, I am involved in research projects using tissue culture techniques. My work includes the planning and the realization of the experiments and the writing of scientific papers.
