Academic Interests

I am interested in plant physiology, in particular eco and stress physiology in plant, inculdig oxidative stress and the importance of antioxidants.

I have had research projects in the following areas:

  • Cleansing and characterization of enzymes and regulation of aminoacid metabolism (aspartate family).
  • The smell of soil and the substance ”geosmin” from cyanobacteria and actinomycetes.
  • Biosynthesis of the plant hormone ethylen related to hypoxi in barley.
  • Decomposition of cell walls during the budding of barley.
  • Remote analysis of vegetational damage.
  • Effect on vegetation from ozone.
  • Different nitrogen sources for plants.
  • Ammonium toxicity.
