My actual research is focused in try to enhance biostimulants against drought. Biostimulants are known for being an environmentally friendly alternative to current fertilisers and plant protection products in the market. They can help plants grow by enhancing nutrient uptake as well as protect the health of crops by improving their tolerance to stress. The EU-funded NANOSTIMULANTS project aims to increase the effectiveness of biostimulants by developing a Nanostimulant – a nanoparticle that encloses a biostimulant. Key to achieving this will be advanced nanoencapsulation techniques.
I like to travel when I can, and I am also a big football fan. But what I like to do most in my free time is to deal with topics that are far removed from my normal field of research
