Research Interests / Job description
Our lab works on the interface between material sciences and biology. We use synthetic materials to both mimic and gain insight over biological systems. Our main interest lies in the surface microstructure of plants and the effect it has on plant-environment interaction. Main projects include:
- Synthetic replicas of tomato leaf surface microstructure under different conditions that vary the microstructure. Examination of how those changes influence the leaf interaction with different tomato pathogens.
- Synthetic replicas of tomato root surface in a three dimensional manner as well as combination of different structures with different chemicals extracted from the root. This system is a platform to separate the physical effect from the chemical effect in the root-pathogen interaction.
- Studying the influence of the three dimensional arrangement of the cells on the plant's regeneration potential.
