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) from University of Göttingen. I am an I’m currently an Assistant Professor of Soil-Plant Interactions at the Department of Land, Air and Water Resources, University of California, Davis and a research associate at the 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.
