Researcher interests: Mode of action of growth regulators in the control of citrus leaf and fruit abscission, with special emphasis on the role of auxin metabolism and translocation in relation to ethylene effects. Auxin catabolism in relation to ethylene effect and tissue sensitivity. Controlling post- harvest flower abscission of Cestrum elegans. Ethylene biosynthesis relating to abscission, senescence and fruit maturity, ethylene perception and signal transduction at the genome level. Response of endogenous ethylene on the postharvest behavior of citrus fruit at the molecular level. Effect of ethylene blockers on external ethylene actions on citrus fruits. Flowering and fruiting as affected by exogenous hormones. Carbohydrate metabolism in relation to fruit development and maturity. Molecular aspects of sucrose glycolysis and gluconeogenesis.
