Our research focuses on understanding how plants use environmental signals to balance stress responses and their development. We focus specifically on how plants sense and acclimate to flooding stress, which is an increasingly major issue in agriculture. We discovered that plants have the capacity to "remember" flooding stress, which improves survival chances during subsequent flooding events. We aim to uncover how plants encode flooding memory, and identify the molecular targets that lead to improved flooding tolerance.





Our research is supported by CIBSS and the University of Freiburg.
