Miguel Simon

Inside the LAB

  • Miguel Simon is a PhD student from Valencia. In the lab, he investigates how light quality regulates the biosynthesis of secondary metabolites in plants.

  • In particular, he studies how tomato plants accumulate pigments which color non-photosynthetic tissues such as fruits.

    Outside the LAB

    • Outside the lab, Miguel really likes different kind of activities... but maybe the most remarkable is theatre, as he acts as amateur in musicals. This free-time activity has helped him to feel comfortable when he has to give a seminar at work or has to speak to an audience.
