We study cell morphogenesis and growth regulation in plants. With the help of multidisciplinary approaches, we aim to understand how plant cells obtain their functional form, how they perceive and communicate environmental stimuli and how they respond to them in terms of cell structure and growth.
We pursue three research directions:
- Cell polarity, morphogenesis and growth regulation
- Stimulus processing, cell-cell communication and acclimatization
- Development of structured micro-environments for the microscopy of plant roots and microorganisms
