My research stands on the crossway between xylem structure and function. I am interested in understanding how plants respond to drought stress via adaptations on their hydraulic architecture. Through hydraulic measurements, I assess plant stem resistance to air bubble formation under drought stress, coupled with microscopy observations of different xylem anatomical characters using light and electron microscope.

Keywords

Drought embolism resistance, plant hydraulics, xylem anatomy.
