Research Associate

Research overview

I am a postdoc researcher in Professor Elizabete Carmo-Silva’s lab at Lancaster Environment Centre (Lancaster University, Lancaster, UK), which focuses on photosynthesis research.

My research interests include understanding plant responses to their surrounding environment and enhancing plant performance under different scenarios.

I have worked in several projects focused on understanding forest trees/woody species response to biotic and abiotic stresses using an integrated approach – from physiology to Omics.

As part of the CAPITALISE project, I am currently studying strategies to improve photosynthesis for higher yielding crops based on Rubisco regulation by Rubisco activase.
