Sabina Villadangos is performing her PhD thesis in the PLANTSynergy group. She received a BSc in Biochemistry from the Autonomous University of Madrid in 2019 and a MSc in Molecular Biology, Biochemistry and Biomedicine from the Autonomous University of Barcelona in 2020. Moreover, she performed a Data Analysis Course in 2021. Currently, she is studying the protective mechanisms to cope with severe drought stress in non-model plants, both in C3 and CAM species, particularly focusing on the role of jasmonates. Specifically, the selected species are the olive tree due to its agroecological relevance and Sempervivum tectorum for its resistance to harsh environments. Her thesis is ascribed to the research line “Mechanisms of abiotic stress tolerance”.
