|Febri is a postdoc. He obtained his B.Sc. from IPB University, Indonesia, and was working on DNA methylation that regulates a gene during somatic embryogenesis of plant. Then, he was funded by the Australian Award Scholarship to obtain his M.Sc. from School of Botany, University of Melbourne Australia. He was working with parasitic dinoflagellates, a relative of malaria parasites. He joined the Frank Lab in 2015 and the Frank Lab converted him to study animal embryogenesis but came back to his “origin” in studying DNA methylation. Now, His main interest is getting broader onto epigenetics during early embryogenesis of early-diverging animals like Hydractinia. He has completed his PhD in 2020. Outside the lab, he is into discussing politics, charity acts, and philosophical discourses. |
