Research Interests:

The major interest of the lab is to understand the molecular processes by which plant hormone signals (Brassinosteroid) integrates with environmental signaling (temperature, light, water availability, and CO2). Overall, we aim to identify efficient molecular tools to generate climate resilient plants without yield and nutritional value impairment.
