Area Of Interest

Plant biology and biochemistry


My scientific research activities have allowed me to learn how to select and use tools for assessing genetic diversity in plant traits related to abiotic stress responses and tolerance, and for linking gene expression with physiology in order to unveil the underlying mechanisms. I have investigated morpho-physiological and molecular responses of several plant species to environmental stresses and the hormonal control (ethylene, jasmonates, polyamines) of fruit development and postharvest quality.
