Elisenda Feixes

Inside the LAB

Elisenda Feixes experiments with tomato plants under extreme conditions: high salt and light levels. She wants to see how they cope with climate change. She looks at how the mitochondria proteins (the cell’s power plants) help them survive in different environmental conditions.

Outside the LAB

When Elisenda is not in the lab, she likes to read crime novels and watch documentaries of real crimes, because she is fascinated by the human mind. She also likes to do sports, because it helps her to relax and stay fit. We can find her swimming, climbing a mountain or practicing with the skate, which is her latest challenge.
