Welcome to Giti !

Hi everybody!

I am Giti Ghazi Soltani and I just joined the Soyk lab as PhD student.

I started my University studies in Agricultural Sciences with a focus on Plant Pathology at the University of Tabriz, Iran.

I completed a Master’s degree in the University of Pierre and Marie Curie (UPMC) in Paris on taxonomy of a pollinator bee species. Then, I joined the group of Niko Geldner at UNIL in 2017, where I studied the role of a gene family in plant volatile perception in the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana.

In the Soyk lab, I am interested in identifying genes and genetic interactions that regulate meristem development and plant architecture in the model crop tomato.
