Research Interests

I am interested in how plants respond to ambient temperature. In the Wigge group, I am focussing on the identification and characterization of mutants from a forward genetic screen of HSP70::Luciferase. I am also studying the role of H2A.Z in controlling the transcription of thermo-responsive genes.
