Research interests

Plant cellular and molecular biology, development and plant-pathogen interactions. Additionally, I remain interested in the fields I have worked on during the course of my undergraduate studies: Redox regulation in photosynthetic organisms, secondary metabolite production in plant cell cultures, and plant viral vector engineering.
