Research Interests

My work is centered on the use of molecular and bioinformatic tools to investigate the biology of perennial plants with a specific focus on dormancy. I am interested in mechanisms that can be used to control post harvest sprouting in potato as well as the effects of climate change on dormancy and shoot growth in grapes.

Interests: Woody Plant Physiology, Plant Metabolism, Genetic Modification of Plants, Molecular Biology, Bioinformatics
