Research interests

My research interests lie in the environmental response of crops and other plants, particularly in terms of photosynthesis, carbon metabolism and storage. In particular my work tries to understand the mechanisms that allow certain plants to tolerate environmental stress and maintain photosynthetic capabilities when exposed to changing conditions.

I also have a strong research interest in environmental and agricultural policy, science and technology education and science communication.
