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.

International research:

I am interested in developing research projects with scientists in China on forestry and forest biotechnology.
