Research group



Eva joined the lab in 2019 to investigate the molecular function of WD40-repeat proteins in the plant circadian clock. Previously, she held a MRC Career Development Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Francis Crick Institute (former National Institute for Medical Research) with Peter Thorpe. Eva obtained her PhD with Seth Davis at the Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research in Cologne in Germany. Before her PhD, Eva completed her undergraduate studies on Biology and Biochemistry at the University of Navarra in Spain, and a Masters Degree on Plant Biotechnology at Wageningen University in the Netherlands.
During her PhD, Eva worked on the molecular basis of ELF3 and ELF4 function in the plant circadian clock. She developed a fascination for cell biology, particularly on the regulation protein localization and protein function. During her postdoc, Eva worked in the regulation of asymmetric partitioning of proteins during cell division in budding yeast.

Research overview

Eva’s project follows up on recent work in the Glover and Webb lab that revealed an essential function of TTG1 in the circadian oscillator. Through a combination of genetics and molecular cell biology approaches Eva is trying to uncover the molecular mechanism of TTG1 function in the clock and the basis of the functional divergence between TTG1-WDR proteins.
