Katharina is a plant physiologist with a particular interest in plant stress responses. For her PhD she worked on drought stress responses in potatoes in collaboration between Lancaster University and NIAB . Her field of expertise is closely linked with challenges through climate change. Hence, she is interested in innovative ways to make potato production more sustainable.
Katharina is working at Wageningen University as postdoctoral researcher in vertical farming and remains connected to NIAB in the function of a research consultant.
