Krystian Ubych

201703-KU-PhDI have graduated from the University of Warsaw (UW, Poland) where I completed my masters in Chemistry and Physics. My master project in Chemistry was focused on the synthesis, properties and application of fluorescently labelled and biotinylated dinucleotide mRNA 5’ end analogues under supervision of Dr Jacek Jemielity. Whereas my master project in Physics was focused on preparation and exploring optical properties of MoS2/graphene heterostructures in the group of prof. Andrzej Wysmolek. I am a PhD student in dr Robert Neely and Paco’s groups. During my PhD I am working on synthesis of DNA and protein methyltranserases’ cofactors analogues modified within nucleobase as tools in studying of the epigenome. In my spare time I enjoy playing tennis, travelling and listening to music.
