Research Interests

My current research interests include the genetic improvement of crops and the development of new agricultural technologies by taking advantage of the genetic diversity in microalgae, using high-throughput screening, genetic engineering, genome mining and bioinformatic approaches. Current projects include research on new compounds with herbicidal and nematicidal effect, and the study of regulatory networks on lipid biosynthesis.
