How do plants degrade cellular components for energy production
Plant & Environmental Sciences

Research Interests

We are interested in understanding how plants degrade cellular components for energy production. This occurs during the development of non-photosynthetic tissues and under stress conditions, in which photosynthesis is not functioning well. We are focusing on a cellular degradation mechanism called ‘Autophagy’, investigating it using molecular and metabolomic approaches.

Dissertation Topics

  1. The roles of autophagy in plant metabolism during plant development.
  2. The roles of autophagy in plant metabolism during stress and recovery.
