  • Research Interests

    We are interested in understanding a key question in biology: how development and environmental responses are coordinated across diverse cell types in multicellular organisms? We use plants as a model system to address this question by investigating (i) the role of cell-cell communication in coordinating development and (ii) the role of the environment in influencing developmental plasticity.

Hyperosmotic stress memory in Arabidopsis is mediated by distinct epigenetically labile sites in the genome and is restricted in the male germline by DNA glycosylase activity. eLife, 5, View
