Main fields of research activity:

  • Development of analytical methods for analysis of the influence of curvature on shape and growth of biological tissues
  • "Green biotechnology" 3D bioprinting for fabrication of plant cell-laden hydrogel scaffolds
  • “Plant biochemistry” with main focus on adaption strategies of plants to abiotic stresses (heat, cold, and water stress) and  exploration of function, regulation and interaction of membrane proteins
  • „Pollen systems biology” with main focus on investigation the ability of pollen to cope with osmotic stress (osmoregulation) by using an multi-omics approach (transcriptomics, metabolomics, (phospho-)proteomics)
