Photosynthesis drives life on this planet by providing the oxygen, food and energy required to support
“higher” life forms – including us humans. Research in our lab focuses on resolving the biochemical, cellular
and canopy-level mechanisms that determine photosynthetic fluxes of carbon and oxygen with the end goal
to better model plant response to climate change and engineer more efficient crops.
