We are interested in understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying the short and long-term regulation of photosynthesis in the model species Arabidopsis thaliana and barley (Hordeum vulgare) by using molecular genetics, biochemistry and proteomic approaches.
We also use Arabidopsis and barley to understand the molecular details responsible for the chloroplast biogenesis and plastid-nucleus communication.

Within the frame of more applied research interests we use:
i. barley to identify the traits useful to transform crops into dual-purpose plants for the production of both biofuel and grains;
ii. the yeast-two hybrid approach to obtain peptide aptamers to be used as sustainable pesticides in agriculture.
