Research interests

My main interest is to understand how plants behave under stress conditions. I have been always interested in molecular plant biology and which genes are involve in certain processes in the plant. Previously I have been studying how plants respond under biotic stress, trying to find out the mechanisms involve in the interaction plant-pathogens. In my current research I want to study how plants behave under environmental stress conditions, to see which genes are involve in those stress. I’m currently working with some crops like rice, so this research could have an impact in agriculture.
