Brief Bio: I am fascinated by plants’ ability to synthesize complex bioactive specialized metabolites. My research focuses on the biosynthesis, evolution and physiological function of specialized metabolites in different plants species. I am particularly interested in the cytochrome P450 superfamily and their redox-partners. Together, these membrane-bound enzymes play key roles in metabolite biosynthesis, which ultimately allow plants to respond and interact with their biotic and abiotic environment.
