My current research focuses on the adaptative mechanisms of grapevines and rootstocks to soil salinity, and their genetic and genomic basis. The aim of this area of research is to provide valuable reference for future breeding programs to produce cultivars that mantain high quality yield over increasing levels of salinity, and minimize the loss that this pressure is causing to the grape and wine industries in some important regions in Australia and overseas.
