Research of Interests

I am interested in understaning the effect of plants’ root exudations (mainly crops) on enhancing the accessibility of plants to water and nutrition, especially in deficit conditions.

To reach this point, having vast knowledge about the mechanistic understanding of the soil-related process occurring at the soil-root interface in deficit conditions is essential which will be obtained by knowing:

  • Roots Morphology and Biomechanics
  • Plant-Soil Interactions
  • composition of root exudations
  • Effect of root exudations on soil hydraulic properties
  • Rhizosphere
  • Effect of root exudations on water flow and solute transport in soil

By having a whole package obtained from knowing each of the above-mentioned, it would be possible to predict how the roots of plants will modify their surrounding in exposure to limit conditions to survive the life of the plant.
