Hi, I’m Luca.

I am interested in the evolution of complexity in proteins. My PhD project focuses on deciphering the cause and effect of complexification in Rubisco, the carboxylase of the Calvin cycle. 

Over the course of evolution, certain Rubiscos gained a new subunit (the so-called “small subunit”). In my project I try to figure out what the small subunit does and how it influenced Rubiscos evolution.
