I have studied medicine in Vilnius University, Faculty of Medicine. On 2008 I completed specialization in General Paediatrics, on 2009 - in Pediatric Pulmonology. I was directly involved in the various research projects, such as the pathogenesis and prevallence of drug hypersensitivity reactions in children, food allergy, chronic cough in children.

On 2007 I started my activity in EuroPrevall birth cohort study ( EU 6 FP project "EuroPrevall") as a researcher of Lithuanian birth cohort. Currently I am a PhD student at the Vilnius University, Faculty of Medicine, Department of Pathology, Pharmacology and Forensic medicine. As junior researcher I take part in the Allergemol project, the continuation of Lithuanian Europrevall birth cohort, where the prevalence, genetical, immunological and environmental factors influencing development and progression of allergic diseases are evaluating.

I am coordinator lecturer at Klaipeda's University, Faculty of Health sciencies, responsible for the „Environment and health" discipline, mainly focussing on environmental impact (such as pollution, climate) on the health and chronic diseases such as asthma and allergy. My current possition is general pediatrics and pediatric pulmonologist at Klaipeda Children's Hospital, Lithuania.

I have been a JMA member of EAACI since 2007 and I have actively participated in EAACI congresses and meetings.

My special intentions is to intensify connections and extend collaboration between JMA's in different scientific societies and to promote deeper involvement of junior doctors and researchers in scientific projects across all Europe.
