Brief bio: I’m fascinated by how plants adapt to diverse and challenging environments. My master research provided insight into the role of RAS1 in salt stress in Arabidopsis. This research experience inspired me to do more research on how plants manage to survive in harmful environments. I was first introduced to plant pathology when I worked on Arabidopsis resistance against Pseudomonas syringe DC3000 under the guidance of Prof. Heribert Hirt in KAUST. My research examined the function of intracellular ion transporter CCC1 in plant immunity, which is presented in this article. I obtained extensive research experience in molecular biology and genetics during this research experience. Currently, I am trying to investigate the effects of endophytes in plant salt tolerance, with the goal of gaining potential opportunities for crop productivity improvement.






简要背景:我对于植物适应多种多样环境的机制十分着迷。我的硕士研究工作主要阐述了RAS1在拟南芥盐胁迫响应的作用。这一研究经验激励我继续追求理解植物逆境生存的分子机制。加入沙特阿卜杜拉国王科技大学之后,我在Heribert Hirt教授的指导下研究拟南芥抗病原菌Pseudomonas syringe DC3000的病理学机制。本文详细阐述了细胞内离子通道蛋白CCC1在植物免疫中的关键作用。在进行本文相关课题的研究工作中,我积累了丰富的分子生物学和遗传学研究经验。在结束本文相关的研究工作后,我目前正致力于探索内生菌在植物抗盐中的作用。我希望我的最近研究工作能够为提升作物产量发现新的可能。
