Background and activities
The research interests of my group are in the area of plant cell wall biology. We are analysing signalling processes during cell wall integrity maintenance, investigating carbohydrate metabolism and aiming to understand the processes determining plant cell wall composition and structure. Structure and composition are important because they determine the efficiency of bioenergy production from biomass and the ability of food crops to resist biotic and abiotic stress.
