The question my research seeks to address is 'how are the mechanisms of membrane trafficking involved in normal growth and development, adapted for responses to biotic and abiotic stress?' My objective is to identify components recruited to responsive trafficking mechanisms and provide targets to uncouple negative impacts on plant growth during adaptation to stress.
My group uses the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana, advanced proteomics, confocal microscopy and biochemistry to identify protein complexes and post-translational modifications at the interface between signal perception and responsive trafficking.
