My scientific research is built around plant interactions. In my postdoctoral research in Netherlands Institute of Ecology (NIOO KNAW), I focus on the ecology of range expanding plant species. Shortly, I want to know if the interactions of range expanding plant species and soil organisms change during the expansion. More specifically, I focus on the composition and effect of arbuscular-mycorrhizal fungal communities, associated to range expanding plant species. This knowledge will help us understand if range expanding plant species can threaten existing communities in their new range.
Personal postdoctoral research grant, funded by Estonian Research Council: “Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi in the roots of range-expanding plants: composition, function and eco-evolutionary dynamics”
My complete CV and publication record is available in Estonian Research Information System (ETIS).
