  • 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!

    The best thing about science is that you never stop learning.

    Can you describe your attitude toward science when you were in high school?

  • Answer the question you selected for profile question 3 here (300 words):
    I remember my chemistry class teacher. He encouraged our curiosity towards everything related with science. Actually my attitude was mostly being curious with a lot of questions.
