Postdoctoral fellow @ Rhizosphere
Michiel Vandecasteele obtained his PhD in Bioscience Engineering at Ghent University in 2019. During his PhD, he studied the occurrence, genotypic diversity, and the mode of action of pathogenic Alternaria species on Flemish potato fields, while also performing educational tasks as an assistant. In 2020, he returned to the Rhizosphere group as a doctor-assistant since he performed his Master’s thesis in the same group eight years prior. Now, he investigates the action of drought-tolerance-inducing rhizobacteria on wheat plants.
