PhD student at: University of Amsterdam (UvA), Swammerdam Institute for Life Sciences (SILS), Plant Hormone Biology group
Supervisor: prof. H.J. Bouwmeester (SILS, UvA), supervisor: dr. L. Dong (SILS, UvA).
Overall aim: My project aims to unravel potato-microbes-PCNs chemical communications. As a PhD student at the MiCRop consortium, I am investigating the microbial recruitment by tomato/potato root under nitrogen deficiency. For this, I am using multiomics technology coupled with advanced analytical chemistry and molecular biology tools to uncover the signalling molecules and their corresponding genes.
