I have Polish roots, but my intellectual germination started in the Netherlands, at the University of Amsterdam. I was nurtured under the supervision of Prof. Testerink, during my Ph.D. project where I studied Root System Architecture of Arabidopsis HapMap population, developed a simple Root-Fit model to describe stress-induced reprogramming of the architecture and explored the salt induced changes in the rosette size. Right now I am a PostDoc at KAUST, in Saudi Arabia, where I work on (1) salt-induced changes in root:shoot ratio in Arabidopsis, (2) study the expression patterns in plants with enhanced sodium accumulation in their roots and (3) develop tools for data analysis. I am passionate about capturing plant architecture using simple models, understanding plant physiology and salinity tolerance. I love coding in R, BIG data analysis and sharing whatever I know with whoever cares to listen.
