My current research deals with the characterization of a novel type of abiotic stress found in Arabidopsis thaliana named photoperiod stress and aims to decipher the role of the plant hormones cytokinin, auxin and ethylene in regulating the sensitivity to the stress as well as to investigate if and how the hormones interact with each other in this context.
