Early stage researcher in the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network PROTECTA and PhD student at the department of Plant Protection Biology, SLU Alnarp


I'm a PhD student in the Department of Plant Protection Biology at SLU Alnarp, where I work under the supervision of Åsa Lankinen, Laura Grenville-Briggs, Jean Yong, and Veiko Lehsten. My research focuses on exploring alternative methods of resistance to Phytophthora infestans in potato. Specifically, I'm investigating the effects of induced resistance as a low-risk alternative to synthetic pesticides and how induced resistance, together with plant-pathogen interactions, will be altered under future climate scenarios.
