Margit Drapal

Research Assistent

Royal Holloway University of London

With a Chemistry/Biochemistry background, Margit has developed metabolomic expertise across multiple analytical platforms and applied these skills to microorganisms and plants to answer key biological questions. Working on the CGIAR Roots, Tubers and Banana programme provided first-hand experience working with partners in the “global South” and the breeding of improved staple crops for these regions.
