I am interested in using integrative system biology and high throughput approaches to understand plant specialized metabolism in plant environmental stress interactions. One of his projects is focused on plant microbiome interactions. Plants utilize chemicals to communicate with microorganisms, favoring beneficial microbes and killing harmful ones. I use integrative approaches, including metabolomics, genetics, transcriptomics, proteomics and others to identify novel secondary metabolites involved in plant microbe interactions and explore how plants use these metabolites to benefit their own.
