Biotic Interactions

This research program aims to advance our understanding of the metabolic interactions that underpin plant-microbiome systems. By elucidating the roles of metabolites in nutrient cycling, stress response, and growth promotion, we aim to:

  • – Develop targeted approaches for microbial (consortium) selection and application to enhance agricultural sustainability.
  • – Design innovative strategies for nutrient management, reducing fertilizer use while maintaining crop yields.
  • – Improve plant resilience to environmental stressors through metabolite-mediated microbial modulation.
