Research Interests

My research interests lie in the area of plant ecology, ecology of transgenic and conventional crops, species competition, and crop breeding. Currently working within NFP 59, I focus on the understanding of transgene x environment interactions in transgenic wheat, in particular, its competitive ability and life history traits, such as seedlings persistence, seed and pollen viability.
