Research interests

Plant cell signalling

We use genetics, chemical genetics and molecular biology to understand cell signalling networks in plants. We consider these pathways in the context of light sensing and photosynthesis to define their contribution to plant physiology and development. Our research covers cell signalling, cell wall biology, circadian biology and plant physiology.

Research projects

  • Post-transcriptional regulation of the circadian clock by nutrients and metabolism
  • Role of circadian rhythms for shelf-life of vegetables
  • Probing sugar signalling pathways with kinase inhibitors
  • Translational regulation of the circadian clock by uORFs
