Research

My research interests are in understanding intracellular transport processes in plants and how they relate to cell polarity and plant development.
This includes membrane transport in the endomembrane system as well as cytoplasmic streaming and transport of whole organelles.
For details, please visit the lab web page. This is also where all my publications are listed.
