Personal profile


I obtained my PhD in Physics in 2016 from Vilnius University, Lithuania, where I focused on developing vibrational (micro)spectroscopy approaches for biological applications and worked on different projects: from fundamental studies of bonding in organic molecules, to characterization of tissues for cancer diagnosis, to searching for phylogenetic relations in fossil plants. In early 2018 I started my postdoctoral research at Lund University, Sweden where I was studying soil aggregation and soil fungal interactions with mineral environments via synchrotron radiation based techniques, including scanning transmission X-ray microscopy (STXM) and X-ray fluorescence (XRF) microscopy. Now, I am starting my own project, focused on combining microfluidics and vibrational microspectroscopy to study microscale fungal interaction for increased understanding of carbon cycling in soils and how it is affected by human-induced climate change.
