Nino studied Biology at the Kazan State University in Russia and carried out his Master thesis on the development of flax fibres. During his PhD he joined the group of Markus Pauly at the Max Planck Institute of Plant Physiology and Michigan State University working on genetic dissection of pectin biosynthesis in Arabidopsis. Nino worked at the University of Cambridge as a postdoctoral fellow in the field of organelle proteomics and plant polysaccharide synthesis, focusing specifically on the functional composition of the plant Golgi apparatus with an emphasis on the xylan biosynthetic machinery.

He joined the Aebersold lab in May 2016 as a postdoctoral fellow, working towards high throughput discovery of membrane protein complexes.

Nino’s research is supported by a Marie Curie Individual Fellowship.
