My main research interest is in studying the molecular mechanism of action of plasma membrane receptor proteins and transporters and other components of the signaling pathways that connect the plasma membrane and nucleus, in higher plants. We use Arabidopsis thaliana as a genetic model to study these proteins. My laboratory also develops and applies new genomic technologies to study the role of these proteins, including isotope-assisted mass spectrometric-based methods for quantifying hormone induced changes in the phosphoproteome and metabolome.
