About

I am a plant biologist with a special passion for large organisms - trees!  Trees are ‘large' not merely by their physical or genome size, but primarily by their longevity.  Longevity depends on a perennial growth habit, which can mean added functionalities for genes, proteins and metabolites compared to herbaceous annuals.  The quest for 'what makes a tree a tree' has led to various projects ranging from gene family evolution and functional diversification, to transgenic manipulation of traits important to growth and development.  Needless to say, our research has industrial relevance due

About

Our lab is interested in understanding how biotic and abiotic factors influence the physiology of trees and how the physiological mechanisms of trees regulate ecosystem processes. Our main research themes are focused on water, carbon, and nitrogen cycling in forest ecosystems. Within these research themes, we explore both basic and applied questions.
