Popis I am a PhD student in Agricultural and Environmental Sciences at the University of Florence.
My field of research is the study of plant responses to abiotic stresses, particularly the biochemical and physiological adjustments of plants under drought stress.
Main Areas of Interest:
• plant secondary metabolites (terpenoids, flavonoids and carotenoids) via HPLC-DAD and  GC-MS
• plant hormones via HPLC-MS-MS
• carbohydrates and osmotic adjustment in plants
• photosyntesis, stomatal conductance and chlorophyll fluorescence
