Research Information

Research Description

Tree and Plant Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, and Genomics. In this area of research, I use modern techniques of plant biology to elucidate the defense ("immune") response of trees (poplars) to insect pests and pathogens.

Health Related Research

I am undertaking research to characterize the biosynthesis and regulation of health-promoting plant chemicals, in particular flavonoids and proanthocyanidins, naturally occurring compounds which are implicated in preventing cardio-vascular disease and cancer in humans.
