Research Summary:

My lab investigates the underlying molecular mechanisms by which plant cells divide and subsequent influence of those divisions on development. We use a combination of cell biology, and chemical, reverse and forward genetics to elucidate the role of proteins that promote proper division plane orientation in several plant systems.
