My lab investigates how steroid hormones (brassinosteroids) control plant growth and development. Using Arabidopsis as a model, we combine cell-specific -omics, imaging and computational biology for the identification of novel signaling pathways that regulate stem cell division and vascular differentiation in plants. Our results have started to be translated into agricultural benefits.
