Researcher interests: Cellular mechanisms controlling the water permeability of the root plasma membrane. Plant Aquaporins (water channels) cellular localization, gating, trafficking and regulation. CO2 conductance through aquaporins at the mesophyll membrane. Root conductivity response to the levels of drought, salinity, nutrients, oxygen, temperature and heavy metals in the soil. Whole plant transpiration use efficiency, abiotic stress resistance.
