  • Research Interests (300 words)
    I like to study the way plants interact with their environment. I have been focused on interactions with microbes and insects but recently we have noticed that also we can found interesting responses under different abiotic factors such drought, salinity, heat, etc.

  • Profile Question 1
    What is the coolest thing you have discovered or learned about plants?

  • Answer the question you selected for profile question 1 here (300 words):
    Plants are holobionts. It means they harbor communities within. I learned that some of these communities are formed by microbes closely related to them, so they are continuously interacting and establishing mutualistic interactions!
