Postdocs and Lab Technicians

Cristina Morabito

Graduated in plant biotechnology, I am specialized in the field of plant physiology with a particular focus on the functions related to carbohydrate metabolism and signaling. As a post-doc researcher, I am mainly interested in studying the cross-talk between plant hormones, primary and secondary metabolites under abiotic stresses and during the following recovery. Aim of my work is to better unrevealing molecular and physiological mechanisms contributing to an enhanced tolerance towards stress.

Silvia Cavalletto

Lab technician. Her main subjects of expertise are agrometeorology and micrometeorology, plant physiology and climate change. She is interested on whole plant water relations and abiotic plant stress biology.
