Associate professor that studies the mechanisms of growth in Arabidopsis thaliana, with emphasis on the development of the root, root hairs, hypocotyl and leaves, based on transciptome analysis and using phenotyping, genotyping, molecular biological approaches and visualization by different means of microscopy. Perturbation of normal growth conditions are used to study 1) normal development and 2) the mechanisms that evoke the typical growth response in the plants.
