Celia Alda-Catalinas

Personal Biography
2015- current: PhD student in Epigenetics, University of Cambridge and The Babraham Institute
2011-2015: BSc in Biochemistry, Universidad Autonoma de Madrid, Spain, and Uppsala Universitet, Sweden

Research Interests:
I am interested in understanding the chromatin and epigenetic regulation mechanisms that direct cell fate decisions during early preimplantation development, specifically, the transcriptional activation of the zygotic genome, using molecular biology and multi-omics sequencing technologies.
