A list of PhD students who started within the IMPRS in 2011 (start of PhD project in 2012).
K. Naga Apoorva
I was born in India and studied at the VIT University in India, where I received my M.Sc. in Biotechnology in 2010. I am currently a PhD student within the IMPRS for Evolutionary Biology in the Department for Evolutionary Ecology working with Dr. Irene Samonte-Padilla.
I was born in Kolea (Tipaza), Algeria and studied biology (Animal Ecology) at the University of Science and Technology, Algiers, and then at the university of Pierre and Marie Curie (Paris VI), where I received my M.Sc. after completing my master thesis studying the evolution of enamel proteins in amniots. I am currently a PhD student within the IMPRS for Evolutionary Biology working on the characterization of candidate genes from a QTL analysis of the skin Microbiota in house mouse. I am part of the Evolutionary Genomics group of Prof. Dr. John Baines at the Max Planck Institute in Plön and the Excellence Cluster "Inflammation at Interfaces" at the university in Kiel. I like travelling, practicing sports, painting and reading.
I was born in Germany, and studied Biology at the Christian Albrechts University in Kiel, where I received my Diploma in 2011. I am currently a PhD student within the IMPRS for Evolutionary Biology working on “Genetic determinants of microbiota and parasites associated with Cottus across natural hybrid zones” in the Research Group for Evolutionary Genetics of fishes with Dr. Arne Nolte at the Max Planck Institute in Plön.
I was born in Germany, and studied biosciences at the University of Münster and the University of Heidelberg, both Germany, where I received my M.Sc. in Molecular Biosciences in 2010. I am currently a PhD student within the IMPRS for Evolutionary Biology working on the evolution of homospermidine synthases in grasses in the group for Biochemical Ecology and Molecular Evolution with Prof. Dr. Dietrich Ober at the Botanical Institute of the Christian Albrechts University in Kiel. In my free time I like to read, swim or hang out.
