Dr Monika Zubik-Duda

Monika Zubik-Duda graduated from Maria Curie-Sklodowska University in 2008, in 2011 she recieved Ph.D. degree from the same University.

She’s research interests are focused on photoprotective strategies in the photosynthetic apparatus of plants. Within the framework of her Ph.D. research topic, Monika applied techniques of molecular spectroscopy to analyze regulatory mechanisms of energy transfer within the pigment-protein complex LHCII. She has experience in isolation of light-harvesting complexes from plant material and isolation and purification of photosynthetic pigments using analytical techniques (HPLC, TLC).

Monika is interested in a healthy lifestyle and in her opinion, the easiest way to keep fit is counting up calories. She is an enthusiastic believer in magic properties of dark chocolate (only 25 kcal per one piece). During free time, Monika meets with friends or watches documentaries. Those who know her could say that Monika is a fan of cleaning and maintaining order (in the lab too).
