About

faceWelcome!

My name is Maria Shumskaya and I am currently an Assistant Professor at Kean University, New Jersey, USA . I  work in the field of Plant Science and teach several college level courses on  Plant Science and Biochemistry.

I studied biology and chemistry at the Moscow State University, Russia, and graduated magna cum laude in 2000 with a Masters Degree in Biochemistry.  An irresistible combination of great simplicity and unique complexity of photosynthetic organisms sparked my interest in genomics and molecular biology of Cyanobacteria, which I studied both at the Institute for Plant Physiology, Russa, and at the National Institute for Basic Biology, Japan. I completed my Ph.D. in Plant Biochemistry in 2004 and then continued with the research on proteomics of Cyanobacteria as a post-doc at Stockholm University, Sweden. I later moved to the City University of New York to investigate carotenoid biosynthesis and metabolism of higher plants.

My current research interest is genomics of microscopic organisms inhabiting dead wood.

You can find my Curriculum Vitae and Publications under the corresponding Menu tabs.
