Research Interests

My research is directed towards understanding the metabolic and molecular basis of photosynthetic plasticity across diverse genera possessing crassulacean acid metabolism (CAM), a specialised mode of photosynthesis that results in a substantial (i.e. up to 5 fold) improvement in plant water-use efficiency compared to other modes of photosynthesis (i.e. C3 and C4). Research interests span from plant ecophysiology through to whole plant physiology, biochemistry, gene expression and transcriptomics.
