Project: Grafting
Specialty: Plant physiology, Combined abiotic stresses
The main focus of my research is understanding crop-plants adaptions to environmental stresses and stresses combination. Research in our lab combine whole plant physiology and functional genomics approaches aiming to discover novel genes and traits that will be used for future breeding programs to increase crop productivity under stressful conditions.
