From the very beginning, my education has been strongly associated with plant genetics, with a particular emphasis on epigenetic mechanisms involved in the regulation of gene expression during somatic embryogenesis process in Arabidopsis thaliana, which I touched on both in my bachelor’s and in my master’s thesis. In the meantime, I participated in a student internship, where I was responsible for describing potentially pathogenic genetic variants obtained after human DNA next-generation sequencing. As a Ph.D. student, I am working with Hordeum vulgare - model plant among crop plants, focusing on the newest class of phytohormones, strigolactones. My doctoral dissertation is related to crosstalk in strigolactones and abscisic acid signaling pathways
