My research combines manipulative experiments and modeling to better understand how plants will respond to future environments. Much of my work focuses on how carbon balance acclimates to high temperatures, but my goal is to understand the interplay between warming, rising CO2 and drought on plant physiology.

I’m also interested in the limits of plant stress tolerance: how far can you push a plant before it dies, and what is the critical physiological mechanism underlying mortality under different abiotic stresses? These questions can help provide crucial information on thresholds that must be avoided for a species or ecosystem, as well as targets for crop improvement.
