Nicky Faber (Chair)
I’m in the second year of my PhD at Wageningen University, researching the evolutionary aspects of gene drive technology. I’m using Drosophila melanogaster as a model species, and I do modelling and genetic data analysis as well. In my spare time, I enjoy long distance hiking, reading, chess, and hanging out with my guinea pigs.
Victoria Terry (Secretary)
I am a PhD student interested in the ecological and molecular dynamics of AMF-host interactions. I am investigating the presence and functionality of interactions between AMF and cyanobacteria. I am also working on optimizing techniques for analyzing nutrients in the mycorrhizal symbiosis with the use of fluorescent nanoparticles (quantum dots).
Felicia Wolters (General Member)
I'm a PhD candidate at Wageningen University and Research, studying the evolution of specialized metabolism in the Brassicaceae plant family. My approach is based on the integration of genomics, transcriptomics, and metabolomics data for a diverse panel of crop and non-crop species, and different tissue types. My research interests are mainly focused on phylogenomics, systems & synthetic biology, and plant biochemistry.
