She accompanied the students in their seminars and final theses, as well as supervised scientific work at the IAPN, which dealed not only with the basics of plant nutrition, but also with
the nutrient-specific reactions of plant physiology.
Her scientific focus is on water-use efficiency and the effects of salt stress on crops.
She graduated in January 2018 at the University of Kassel in the framework of the Urban FoodPlus project with the thesis titled "Effects of water quality on soil properties and crops in urban gardens of Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso".
