Plants are remarkably sensitive to changes in their environment, and changes in factors such as temperature and light often serve as important signals that influence when a plant flowers and the growth habit it adopts.
Work in my group focuses on understanding how daylength, temperature and light quality (colour) affect vegetative growth and flowering. I work mainly with the model legumes Pisum sativum (garden pea) and Medicago truncatula (barrel medic).
I am also interested in comparative studies with other legume crop species, and in Eucalyptus as a model tree system.
