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.
