Mateusz (Mat) Majda
Assistant Professor and Principal Investigator
Mat obtained his Ph.D. in Biology from the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) in 2018. He did his postdoc at the Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research (MPIPZ) in Germany and at the John Innes Centre (JIC) in the UK. In August 2022, he started his own lab as an Assistant Professor in plant biophysics at the Department of Plant Molecular Biology, University of Lausanne.
Bejoy obtained his Bachelor’s degree in physics and Master’s in biology from the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research in Kerala. During his masters, he used the inducible CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing system to study shoot regeneration in Arabidopsis thaliana. For his bachelor, he developed the dual-arm light sheet microscope to study growth dynamics in Allium cepa. He joined the Majda lab in October 2022.
Audran is currently a third-year undergraduate student studying biology at the University of Lausanne. He is interning in the lab to gain practical experience in a laboratory. He joined the Majda lab in December 2022.
