My name is Natasha and I joined the Electron Nanoscopy lab at TU Delft in November 2020 as a post-doctoral researcher. I come from Greece, where I finished my B.Sc. and M.Sc at the Department of Biology at the University of Patras. My M.Sc. focused on method development and structural analysis of proteins via X-ray Powder Diffraction. After a 6-month internship at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (Wilmanns group, EMBL, Hamburg, Germany), where I trained in structural biology and biophysical techniques, I continued my studies with a Ph.D. in structural biology in the same group. For my Ph.D. I worked on the structure of peroxisomal membrane and soluble complexes using a combination of X-ray Crystallography, biophysical methods and EM. In 2018, I moved to Japan for a post-doc at the High Energy Accelerator Research Organisation (KEK) where I worked on protein-DNA complexes involved in transcription activation and chromatin formation.
Although not very exciting, my hobbies include reading, music (and concerts), singing and (when possible) travelling.
