Timea Marton is currently a PhD student in the Fungal Biology and Pathogenicity Unit. She previously aquired an Honours BSc. in Biology with a specialization in cellular and molecular biology from the University of Ottawa, Canada. Then, her interest of the fungal world drove her to obtain an IMVI-Medical and Environmental Mycology Masters (M2) from the Paris Diderot-Paris 7 University.
At the University of Ottawa, Timea studied the genomic expression and soil diversity of the mycorrhiza Rhizophagus irregularis (Glomeromycota). While during her Masters and PhD she studies the genome dynamics of Candida albicans by focusing on the identification of lethal ressesive alleles and looking into the impact of the human gut microbiota on C. albicans genome stability.
