The activities carried out within these projects and the Laboratory have focused on studying the effects of climate change on major vegetable crops in Romania, identifying genotypes, varieties, and cultivars of vegetables that exhibit increased resistance to climate change effects, studying new technologies to mitigate the negative effects of climate change on vegetable crops, and obtaining new varieties of vegetables, medicinal plants, and aromatic plants in Romanian agriculture. These activities have led to the publication of scientific articles as the main author or co-author in indexed journals, participation in national and international conferences and specialized communications, as well as co-authoring the “Special Vegetable Cultivation Treaty” with Dr. Ing. Bianca Musat, under the coordination of Dr. Ing. Costel Vinatoru.
Her experience gained throughout the years of training in Biology and Horticulture enables her to continue her work as a Scientific Researcher at the Plant Genetic Resources Bank for Vegetable, Floriculture, Aromatic, and Medicinal Plants in Buzau since 2021. As an expert in biology and biochemistry, her main responsibility within the bank is the taxonomic classification of biobankable plants, including endemic species, local populations, newly identified and preserved cultivars. She also conducts biochemical analyses to determine the chemical composition of plants for identifying their potential uses.
