Research Interests

I am interested in understanding and enhancing the management of plant nutrition under environmental stresses. My focus is on comprehending the main mechanisms influencing the increase of plants' resistance to environmental stresses. I am also interested in the chemical, physical, and biological reactions that occur at the root-soil interface. I am currently focusing on the factors affecting rhizosheath formation and the effect of rhizosheath on improving the absorption of water and nutrients under drought stress.
