I am working on an exciting and challenging project related to plant regeneration using the Arabidopsis root system as a model. I hope to discover the molecular pathways which control cell dedifferentiation, transdifferentiation and redifferentiation processes in plants. Here, I learned that life is a climb, but the view is great.

The long-range objective of my research group is to understand specialized responses of the root stem cell niche to diverse environmental stresses, in order to open the path to understanding how plants perceive, respond and adapt to their environment to ensure their survival and productivity.

I have a strong interest in plant regeneration. Taking advantage of the Arabidopsis root tip regeneration system, I am trying to understand how the root stem cell niche regenerates after wounding injury. I aim to decipher the molecular mechanisms behind this marvelous biological phenomenon, using genetic and genomic approaches.

I’m interested in auxin-ethylene crosstalk in plant growth regulation. Genetic screening and high-throughput sequencing analysis have been used to identify new components in the study. My work is aimed at dissecting the complexity of hormonal network in plant growth and development.
