fingerprint Biography

Jorge Marques da Silva is a plant physiologist (Ph.D. in Biology - Physiology and Biochemistry) interested in the mechanisms of response to stress, chiefly on the effects of drought stress on the photosynthetic metabolism. As Associate Professor at the Faculty of Science, University of Lisbon, his Main scientific interest is in understanding how the interactions of abiotic stresses with the photosynthetic metabolism impairs primary productivity. Currently working in high-throughput plant phenotyping, aiming to unravel environment-genetic interactions in phenotype development, with the ultimate goal of improving crop responses to climate change.
