My Research Interests

My professional interest lies in studying the growth and development of agronomic crops and the plant responses to environmental conditions combining field data and simulation models that help to better understand the plant-environment interaction and to efficiently implement crop management practices. My research experience include design and implement experiments to study the relationship between phenology and weather; manage historical databases for weather and phenology; apply statistical methods to data analyzing and processing. More recently I have been studying the water stress response of wine grape varieties through physiological measurements.
