Research Interest

  • Development and use of genetically encoded fluorescent sensors. In particular, transporter activity sensors for ammonium (AmTracs) for studying ammonium transport in plants and during symbiosis.

  • Role of reactive oxygen and nitrogen species (ROS and RNS) in plant responses to biotic and abiotic stresses and development.

  • Plant responses to heavy metal and programmed cell death (PCD)

  • Molecular aspects of senescence
