     My research focuses on understanding plant physiological and molecular responses to global atmospheric change.  I am working to determine mechanistic bases for limitations on photosynthetic performance including those imposed by agriculturally significant stresses.  My research aims to establish the features controlling the response of photosynthetic productivity in soybean to elevated atmospheric CO2 and tropospheric ozone, and explore the bases for genetic variability in responses.   

     Working at the Soybean Free Air gas Concentration Enrichment (FACE) experiment, I am investigating the molecular and physiological basis for soybean genotypic variation in response to elevated CO2 and tropospheric ozone.
