Photo of Rosanna HennessyRosanna is a microbial biotechnologist with expertise in molecular biology and microbial genetics. Her work focuses on understanding the molecular mechanisms involved in the interactions between beneficial bacteria and pathogenic fungi. Rosanna’s work in INTERACT will mainly focus on understanding how and why beneficial bacteria associated to wheat produce secondary metabolites, and what role rhizosphere-associated signalling molecules play in modulating metabolite production and microbial assembly at the plant-soil interphase.
