Mutez Ali AhmedResearch Associate
Room: GEO II, 105
I received my B. Sc (Agricultural Engineering, Hons, Class one) and M. Sc. (Agricultural Engineering, Distinction) from Department of Agricultural Engineering, Faculty of Agriculture, University of Khartoum and PhD (summa cum laude) in Soil and Plant Hydrology from University of Göttingen. I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Agricultural Engineering, University of Khartoum, Sudan and currently on leave for Postdoctoral Research training at the Division of Soil Hydrology (University of Göttingen) and Chair of Soil Physics (University of Bayreuth).
The primary objective of my research is to understand the basis of crop adaptation to water-limited environment. I am particularly interested in identifying roots and rhizosphere traits that improve the acquisition of resources from the soil. My current work focuses on improving our basic understanding of water uptake by maize and sorghum, with an emphasis on traits affecting root hydraulic.
