Biography

I studied Biochemistry at the University of Sofia, Bulgaria, then did my PhD with Professor Stefan Gründer at the University of Tübingen, Germany. I undertook postdoctoral studies in the Department of Neuroscience, Physiology and Pharmacology at UCL working with Professor Annette Dolphin, where I am currently a holder of an independent grant from the British Heart Foundation. In 2018/2019 I obtained UCL support winning travel grants to perform over five months of research as a visiting scientist in the laboratory of Professor Riccardo Olcese at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) where I applied a specialized optical approach named Voltage-Clamp Fluorometry (VCF) to my studies of the regulation of the voltage-sensing properties of calcium channels.


Research Themes
Research Summary

My current research is focussed on the structure, function, and cellular trafficking of neuronal and cardiovascular Voltage-Gated Ca2+ (Cav) Channel proteins. Better understanding of the molecular mechanisms of physiological, and pathological regulation of Cav channels in excitable cells can provide rationale for future therapeutic design targeting Cav dysfunctions as an underlying cause for severe human diseases.

Teaching Summary

My teaching experience include lectures covering part of Professor Dolphin's teaching duties, tutorials and journal clubs for undergraduate Pharmacology, Biomedical Science and Neuroscience  students. I supervised Pharmacology and Neuroscience undergraduate and MSc students in their practical projects in the laboratory of Professor Dolphin.
