Brief bio:

I am a plant molecular biologist with backgrounds of biotechnology and biochemistry. I am interested in plant molecular responses during their adaptation to the environmental changes. By combining OMICs data, we revealed possibilities of molecular mechanisms how plants cope with stress. I am also interested in translational research where we could apply our knowledge to improve stress tolerance in crops with biotechnological approaches. I hope my research could be a part to strengthen plant science community and contribute to sustainable agriculture.
