I am interested in the cellular changes that enable the adaptation of plants to their enviroment. During, salt stress the balance between sodium and potasium is very important for growth and related to salt tolerance in general. Salt stress changes membrane voltage and thereby the opening of potassium channels. My project focusses on the salt induced changes in potassium  transport and its effect on growth. I will try to find the cellular processes influencing potassium channel and transporter activity during salt stress.
