PlantStressLab - 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 signalling. As a post-doc researcher, I am mainly interested in studying the crosstalk between plant hormones, primary and secondary metabolites under abiotic stresses and during the following recovery. Aim of my work is to better unravel the molecular and physiological mechanisms contributing to 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 in whole-plant water relations and abiotic plant stress biology. 

Nihan Sahin

Post-doc researcher, working on the RADIANT project. Her goal is to investigate the potential of underutilised landraces in improving sustainability of the tomato crop under climate change-related stress conditions.

Davide L. Patono

Post-doc researcher. Expert in carbon assimilation/respiration in plants. His studies focus on plant responses to abiotic stress, light spectra and climate constraints.
