Lamia Aouini obtained her PhD in 2018 from Wageningen University in Netherlands. She, then, spent two years at Purdue University (USA) as a Postdoctoral Research associate. In 2021, Lamia Aouini joined the Center for Desert Agriculture at KAUST as a Postdoctoral Fellow to work at Professor Simon Krattinger 's group on the genetics of cereal diseases, mainly wheat rust diseases.
Lamia Aouini is interested on deciphering the genetic bases of plant - pathogen interactions. She is mainly focusing on studying the genetic mechanisms of disease resistance in cereals such as wheat and barley to rust diseases. Particularly, she is investigating the genetic factors that can fine-tune wheat resistance to rust.
