My research focuses on plant root system development and interaction with symbiotic microorganisms. The experimental models I study are lateral root development in the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana, crown and lateral root development in two important cereals (rice and pearl millet) and actinorhizal nodule formation in the tropical tree Casuarina glauca. The latter is the result of a symbiotic interaction with soil bacteria of the genus Frankia.
