‚ÄčAdvisor: Professor Mark Tester

Bio:
Mariam Awlia was born in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. She received her Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry from University College London (UCL) and Masters degree in Bioscience from King Abdullah University of Science & Technology (KAUST). She is now a PhD candidate in Plant Science at KAUST with a specialisation in plant salinity tolerance under the supervision of Prof. Mark Tester.

Research Interests:
She is interested in understanding the mechanisms of salinity tolerance in plants; an area of importance to agriculture and environmental sustainability. More specifically, her work examines the osmotic component of salinity tolerance (the shoot ion independent tolerance), which is the earliest response to salt stress and is mainly related to changes in growth rate, leaf temperature (stomatal closure) and photosynthetic activity.
