Brief bio: I started the PhD journey in 2018 and the adventure is ongoing. The all project is about phenotyping hydraulic features on the plant. In this respect, I work with models and I go from cells-scale to plant-scale. I am particularly interested in ways to promote sustainable farming systems with plants adapted to local conditions. To this end, I am trying to create tools that will allow us to achieve this objective.
