Profile

Rikke got her BSc degree in Biology from the University of Copenhagen in 2014. During her degree she worked with protein chemistry and NMR spectroscopy in SBiN lab under  Dr. Birthe Brandt Kragelund . Recently she has finished a Master of Science by Research at University of Exeter, where she studied the role of the DNA damage signalling cascade in antibody diversification in the lab of  Dr. Richard Chahwan  (Biocatalysis Centre).

Currently she is enrolled in a PhD with primary supervisor  Dr. Francesca Palombo  as a member of Prof. Nick Stone's Biomedical Spectrocopy Labs within the Biophysics Group, University of Exeter. The research is conducted in collaboration with secondary supervisors  Dr. Richard Chahwan  and  Dr. Stefano Pagliara  (Biosciences, CLES). Her research is focused on FTIR imaging of live immune cells in microfluidic devices; studying chromatin changes during DNA damage and antibody diversification.
