I am a plant ecologist in PLECO (Plant and Ecosystems) and my current work focuses on the impact of drought on plant-soil interactions. Recently, I am particularly interested in differences in root and rhizosphere traits between crops and their wild relatives. I also study the feedbacks between plant and soil function and diversity, and the importance of soil communities for ecosystem stability.
