Main research interests:

  • Plant-microbe-soil interactions response to climate changes;
  • Linking biodiversity to ecosystem functions relevant to carbon and nutrient cycles;
  • Roles of root exudates and mycorrhizal networks in Plant-plant interactions;
  • Stable and active isotopes tracking, Microbiome and Metabolism analysis
