I am a plant physiologist with a special interest in molecular tree biology. I have been working for several years to improve the end-use properties of plants for environmental applications. We are conducting studies on themes such as: soil rehabilitation using phytoremediation, carbon sequestration, the production of biofuels and bioproducts, root biology and the genetic diversity of willows.

I am also in charge of the M.Sc. seminars.
