    My research interest focuses on soil-plant interactions in flooded environments. I do research in Environmental Science, Soil Science and Plant Biology. My work focuses primarily on sulfide dynamics in flooded soils and plant acclimations to flooding.

    Have a look to my website http://plant-and-soil.com/

    Current research

    Triggers to the root barrier against radial oxygen loss (ROL), a mechanism involved in flood tolerance of wetland plants

    Strengths and weaknesses of developing a root ROL barrier. A focus on sulfide intrusion and toxicity

    Development of iron plaques on plant roots during flooding. A possible defense against sulfide intrusion


    Fields of interest

    Flood tolerance, Plant-soil interface, Rhizosphere, Sulfides
