Main research topics

Since I started my scientific career, I have been fascinated by plant metabolites and, in particular, the genetics behind their control. I am keenly interested in unlocking the molecular regulation of these extraordinary natural compounds to better understand their role in plant cells and also in exploiting them for human needs. My main scientific topics of interest are:

  1. Identification of molecular mechanisms underlying metabolite regulation in plant-environmental interaction (e.g. tolerance and defence against biotic and abiotic stress) and during plant development (e.g. effects of polyploidization) by using genetic and omic approaches
  2. Exploitation of natural biodiversity by using genomic tools to enhance the production of bioactive compounds and crop quality traits.
  3. Use of innovative biotechnological approaches for enhancing the production of bioactive compounds and peptides.
