My research activities cover the following aspects

- Germination and seed dormancy – with a focus on Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS), protein oxidation and its interaction with hormones (ie ethylene), light signalling and proteasome.

- Cell wall modifications during endosperm weakening and embryo growth

- Oxidative stress and antioxidant system in plants

- Post-translational modifications of proteins (ie oxidation, phosphorylation) in desiccation tolerance of resurrection plants

- Physiological, biochemical and molecular basis of allelopathy.
