Olli Matilainen, Postdoctoral fellow
Jens Verbeeren, Postdoctoral fellow

I am a postdoctoral researcher with an interest in RNA processing and RNA-binding proteins. In the Garcia lab, I aim to understand how RNA-binding proteins achieve homeostasis, and how this process is regulated in various tissues in vivo using the nematode C. elegans. Outside the lab, I enjoy playing football, spending time with my family and I try to read books.
