Faculty Members in Plant Physiology
Plant biochemistry, physiology and chemical ecology; molecular biology and enzymology of wax metabolism; chemical composition, physiological function and ecological roles of plant surface lipids.
Molecular genetic and biochemical studies of seed lipid and epicuticular wax metabolism and their regulation in Arabidopsis thaliana.
Marine phycology; biomechanics of macroalgae.
I am a plant ecologist. I’m interested in the physical processes linking environmental variation to plant physiology, and how this “scales up” to influence higher-level patterns and processes. My research is interdisciplinary and draws on various fields including ecology, plant physiology, engineering, and geoscience.
Characterization of ER-PM contact site components involved in plant stress tolerance
Teaching & Learning, Molecular Biology, Plant Physiology.
Biological oceanography; carbon dioxide, and trace metal controls on marine phytoplankton and bacteria.
