About me

Research Interests

We use the plant Arabidopsis thaliana ( to study the genes that control the growth and development of roots. To this end, we have identified and are currently characterizing a collection of mutant plants that have temperature-sensitive defects in root growth. Additionally, we are characterizing the expression of transgenic polyglutamine proteins in plants.
