I am a PhD student in the Paszkowski lab studying symbiotic nutrient exchange between arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi and rice plants. My research employs fluorescent reporters and a range of microscopy techniques to visualise the dynamics of nutrient transport at the fungal structures accommodated within mycorrhizal plant roots.
