Research Interests

I am interested in the fundamental question of how the coordination of cell proliferation, cell growth and cell differentiation results in the development of plant organs of specific size, shape and function. I am particularly interested in the gene regulatory networks that direct and coordinate these post-embryonic organogenesis processes and hence generate the enormous diversity we find among plant organs.
