SHORT BIO

Dr Karine Chenu is a plant ecophysiologist and modeller with strong interests on drought and heat adaptation. Her group is conducting research that supports crop modelling technology, plant design and breeding strategies in winter cereals. Karine’s research mainly concerns understanding trait physiology and genetics, developing gene-to-phenotype crop modelling and exploring novel combinations of genotypes, environments and management practices to assist productivity improvement in changing environments. She collaborates with plant breeders, geneticists, modellers and agronomists in a range of national and international research projects in winter cereals.

 

RESEARCH INTERESTS

Karine's interest focuses on drought and heat adaptation. She is conducting research that supports crop modelling technology, plant design and breeding strategies to enhance production in water-limited environments and adapt to climate change. Karine’s work aims at improving crop models and at increasing scientific knowledge concerning environmental and genetic controls of physiological processes. Her research mainly concerns understanding trait physiology and genetics, developing gene-to-phenotype crop modelling and exploring novel combinations of genotypes, environments and management practices. In her current position, Karine collaborates with plant breeders, geneticists, modellers and agronomists in a range of research projects in winter cereals.
