Research/Scientific interest:
Correlations between structure and function of plastids and their interconversions

- Plastids and stress: effect of abiotic (heavy metal, light, salt and drought) and biotic (e.g., mycorrhization) stress on the structure and function of plastids
- Functional characterization and roles of ion channels and transporters in the organization of the thylakoid membranes, in photosynthesis and adaptation to stress
- Thylakoid biogenesis; chlorophyll biosynthesis, etiolated plants grown under natural conditions or in the laboratory and their greening
- Plastid-derived natural products used by the food industry and medicine (e.g., carotenoids, condensed tannins, terpenoids, vitamins B
1, B2, B3, B9, E and K1)
