Faculty Members in Plant Physiology

Name Research abstract
Reinhard Jetter

Plant biochemistry, physiology and chemical ecology; molecular biology and enzymology of wax metabolism; chemical composition, physiological function and ecological roles of plant surface lipids.

Ljerka Kunst

Molecular genetic and biochemical studies of seed lipid and epicuticular wax metabolism and their regulation in Arabidopsis thaliana.

Patrick Martone

Marine phycology; biomechanics of macroalgae.

Sean Michaletz

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. 

Abel Rosado

Characterization of ER-PM contact site components involved in plant stress tolerance

Santokh Singh

Teaching & Learning, Molecular Biology, Plant Physiology.

Philippe Tortell

Biological oceanography; carbon dioxide, and trace metal controls on marine phytoplankton and bacteria.
