Research Interests

Our lab investigates basic principles of plant cell biology. In order to gain true mechanistic understanding, we develop clever genetic tools and large-scale imaging approaches at a single-cell resolution in the powerful model: Chlamydomonas reinhardtii. The green alga Chlamydomonas has unique physiological features that make it an ideal playground for addressing fundamental cellular functions.


Dissertation Topics

  • What key players regulate Chlamydomonas cell size?
  • In depth characterization of the CDKA1 involvement in G1 commitment.
  • What are the regulatory roles of post-translational modifications within the Retinoblastoma pathway?
  • What are the guiding principles of the Chlamydomonas-plant microbiota ecosystem?
