Nikolai Windbichler (n.windbichler)

Nikolai completed his PhD in Vienna, working on the molecular biology of small RNA molecules from bacteria and viruses. For his post-doc years he moved to London in 2006 to work on genetic control of the human malaria mosquito. He continues to follow his interest to develop synthetic gene-machines to control insect pests and to improve the tools that allow us to manipulate and re-engineer complex genomes with precision.
