Researcher at the Department of Plant Breeding


My research focuses on oil accumulation in oil seed crops in general and Camelina sativa specifically. 

Camelina is used as a model plant to study genes of interest for oil-accumulation mainly using gain-of-function and loss-of-function mutations, with the aim to learn more about oil-accumulation pathways and regulation. Another focus is the enzymes of the triacylglycerol synthesis, and these are studied with biochemical methods.
A more recent research interest is the role autophagy plays for lipid synthesis.
