My expertise / skills : We seek to understand the molecular basis of temperature perception by plants. By identifying temperature receptors and temperature responsive pathways in model and crop plants, we aim to contribute to understanding of how both natural ecosystems will respond to climate change as well as the breeding of climate-change resilient crops.
Key advances by the group include the identification of phytochromes as thermosensors as well demonstrating that the circadian clock in Arabidopsis integrates temperature information through the protein ELF3.

Project description : We are seeking partners in the area of understanding how plants (either in natural ecosystems or crops) will respond to climate change. We are seeking to address this across scales, and interested in a broad range of potential collaborators who can write an interdisciplinary project with us. Suitable partners will complement our expertise in the area of plant molecular biology.
Networking opportunities : International Conference for Arabidopsis Research
Society for Experimental Biology
