Nadia graduated from Paris-Saclay University, France with a Master’s degree in Plants Sciences in 2015 and Aix-Marseille University, France with a Master’s degree in Plant Molecular Biology and Biotechnology in 2016. During her undergraduate studies she worked on the genetic regulation of lignification in Arabidopsis at the Institute of Plant Sciences Paris-Saclay/CNRS, Orsay, France, QTL mapping of genetic factors involved in mucilage formation in Arabidopsis seeds at Jean-Pierre Bourgin Institute/ INRA, Versailles, France, and the role of SMC3 and chromatin structure in Arabidopsis oxidative stress response at the Laboratory of Plant Genetics and Biophysics/CNRS/CEA/Aix-Marseille University, France. In April 2017 she started her PhD studies in our team and investigates the role of MutL complexes in Arabidopsis crossover meiotic recombination and is studying crossover distribution is different Arabidopsis accessions as well as mapping for novel meiotic recombination modifiers. In her spare time Nadia enjoys reading, drawing, and travelling.
