The interaction between plant and its environment is a key determinant of plant productivity and ecosystem services. I aim to investigate how plants function in context of their environment and to explore how plants shape the provision of ecosystem services for climate change mitigation.

Research Interests: Plant Physiology, Plant-Environment interaction, Agroecology, Microbial Ecology
