RESEARCH FOCUS

  • Molecular genetics and physiology of plants using cutting edge technology and bioinformatics approaches to investigate plant architecture and acquired herbicide resistance in plants. The main plant species I work with are maize, Arabidopsis thaliana, barley, giant ragweed, and sorghum.
  • Brassinosteroid biology in maize and its contribution to sex determination in plants
