Research interests and expertise:
Our group seeks to understand fundamental principles that govern the development, responses to stress, and evolution of plants. We use a broad range of approaches including molecular biology, classical morphology, and experimental physiology. While we are aiming in extending basic knowledge of plant biology, we also apply learned biological principles in development of sustainable agriculture.
