Plants play a fundamental role in the sustainability of life on earth. Understanding the core developmental and physiological programs that drive plant growth and performance in a changing environment is key to addressing the scientific challenges of future food security. Our interdisciplinary research program is focused on the biological mechanisms and fundamental principles that determine how plants grow and perform in interaction with their biotic and abiotic environment. Studies in model and crop systems cover the broad range of plant science including, gene function, molecules, physiology, cell biology and ecology to understand plant functioning in their often challenging environments. Inspired by nature, we aim to contribute to the development of sustainable solutions for urgent societal problems such as future food security, biodiversity loss under climate change, and protection of our natural resources.
