Our laboratory studies the structure and function of the photosynthetic apparatus of plants, algae and mosses, with focus on the determinants for primary productivity and environmental stress responses. Strong focus is placed on regulatory mechanisms including excess energy dissipation and carotenoid function, and the structure of their complex with thylakoid membrane proteins.
