Dr. Inga Tuminaite


I conducted all of my higher education at Lund University, finalizing it with a PhD in 2020 that I received for studying mammalian skin and cold sensitivity in cold adapted mammal species. Both before and after receiving my doctorate degree, I spent some time working in industrial laboratories, primarily on microbiology and pathology.

I started as a research assistant at the INSECT group in April 2021. My role is to help the research group with administrative, organizational, and various research-related tasks.
