Research Interests:
My research area comprises plant mineral nutrition, with a strong focus on macro- and micronutrient
uptake, assimilation and distribution. I have a substantial background in plant nitrogen- and iron nutrition
in Arabidopsis thaliana and hybrid aspen. Furthermore, root symbiosis with a diverse, soil-based microbial
community for optimal nutrient supply is a second focus in order to broaden the understanding of forest
