Damián Balfagón
Postdoctoral researcher at the Laboratory of Ecophysiology and Biotechnology of the Department of Agricultural Sciences of the University Jaume I of Castelló (Spain). His doctoral thesis has focused on the study of plant responses to combined stress, with special focus on the effects of high temperatures together with other abiotic stress factors on citrus.

Studying citrus tolerance responses to climate change may hold the key to developing new citrus varieties capable of withstanding future environmental conditions while still maintaining production.
