I’m Alejandro Montenegro-Montero and I’m a molecular biologist currently working as a Scientific Editor at John Wiley & Sons, Inc. (starting April 2017). My research was focused on gene expression regulation, specifically, on the characterization of transcriptional regulatory networks in eukaryotes. During my Ph.D., I studied gene regulation in response to stressful conditions, using the filamentous fungus N. crassa as a research system. In addition, I focused on how the circadian clock controls daily rhythms in gene expression in this organism.
I did my Ph.D. and subsequent postdoctoral work at the P. Universidad Católica de Chile, Chile, and then, I did a short postdoctoral stay at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, USA, before joining Wiley.
