Characterization of the molecular crosstalk regulating xylem differentiation by environmental signals and its function in photosynthesis optimisation

The plant vascular system is composed by two conductive tissues, the xylem and the phloem. Xylem conducts water and minerals from the roots and provides mechanical support to the plant due to thick secondary cell walls, rich on lignin and cellulose. Read more

Using soil microbes for biological control of plant-parasitic nematodes

Soil microbes | Plant-parasitic nematodes | Plant defences | Biological control. Plants naturally exploit the soil microbiome by recruiting beneficial microbes that aid plants to rapidly adapt to changing abiotic and biotic conditions. Read more

How does the metabolic status of the plant regulate embryo development and seed viability?

This project will discover how carbohydrate availability regulates embryo development and seed viability in Arabidopsis. Seed growth depends on the interplay between developmental/genetic programmes and carbohydrate supply from the maternal plant. Read more

Developing low-cost methods for tropical forest and peatland carbon monitoring PhD

Tropical forests and peatlands are globally important carbon stores but are under threat from land use and climate change. To offset hard-to-reduce emissions, many businesses invest in carbon credit schemes to preserve and/or restore these ecosystems. Read more

Contaminants in saprolite: an overlooked hotspot of environmental concern PhD

Increasing attention is being placed on the transfer and storage of contaminants in soils, including microplastics, pharmaceuticals (PPCPs), bacteria, and hydrocarbons (PAHs). Recent research has developed methods to detect the presence of these contaminants in, and track their movement through, the soil profile.
