Researcher interests: Plant developmental genetics. Compound leaf development; control of leaf growth and maturation; control of the morphogenetic activity of leaf margins. Shoot apical meristem (SAM) function; the role of KNOXI, TCP and CUC transcription factors in SAM function and leaf development. The role of auxin and cytokinin in SAM function and leaf development. Interaction between hormones and transcription factors.
