Research Interests

My research seeks to understand, in the long run, how changing environmental conditions such as nutrient availability affect plant development and its ability to face biological stress conditions. One of the leading research areas is the study of environmental cues and how genes and their interactions with environmental signals modulate the outcome of plant-pathogen interactions. For this purpose, we integrate genomic data and system biology approaches with physiological and molecular analyses to study Botrytis cinerea and Solanum lycopersicum pathosystem, with an emphasis on establishing a novel framework for the sustainable management of diseases.
