Biografie

Research

I am intrigued by the potential of seeds to survive storage and to time germination to appropriate moments that allow successful establishment of the seedling. My research focusses on fundamental aspects of seed traits, like seed dormancy, seed longevity and germination, in relation to their ecological importance and application prospective for the industry.

Group members:

Leo Willems (technician)

Gonda Buijs (PhD student)

Shuang Song (PhD student)

Nikita Sajeev (PhD student)

Bing Bai (Postdoc)

The following PhD students from my group successfully defended their thesis:
