My research interests are centered around glycans and glycobio(tech)logy.
Biology: From a biological perspective we would like to unravel the roles of novel glycans (in microbes and plants) that are generated by CAZymes (glycosidases and glycosyltransferases) during plant-microbe interactions. Specifically, we would focus on the novel glycan-derived elicitors that are important for immune signalling and disease resistance in crop plants.
Glyco-biotech: Since glycans have a tremendous impact on
