Research Themes
Research Summary

Our research focuses on the role of sugar signalling in plant development and in the perception of environmental signals. For example, my group exploits natural genetic variation to investigate the genetic basis and molecular mechanisms that regulate leaf senescence. Most of this research is conducted with the model species Arabidopsis, but we also use a perennial relative of Arabidopsis, Arabis alpina, to explore how senescence is regulated by environmental conditions in perennial plants. In addition, I am interested in the pathways that determine plant growth in response to temperature.

Teaching Summary

I teach a variety of topics in Plant Biology, such as plant physiology and metabolism, environmental biology, plant ecology, genetic engineering, genomic and functional genomic techniques. In addition to my contributions to traditional lecture-based undergraduate courses, my teaching includes the organisation of a field course and lectures to schools and the public.
