I am interested in understanding the mechanisms of plant responses to various external stresses, such as drought, nutrient stress or soil compaction stress. In particular, how these stresses result in altered root development, using Arabidopsis model species. The project aims to improve our understanding of the molecular basis of plant responses to salinity (salt) stress. A key objective is to investigate the possible role of AtVAMP714 in the plant response to stress and its link with auxin redistribution.
