Biological nitrogen fixation - from genes to environment
Associate Professor Ulrike Mathesius is a plant scientist who has won multiple awards for teaching and research. Her research focuses on how soil microbes shape the plant. A central idea of her work is that microbes have ‘hijacked’ plant signalling pathways for their own purposes. This has implications for utilising microbes to alter crop plant performance and for trying to develop nitrogen-fixing symbioses in non-legumes.
