Research Interests:
My areas of interest include, photosynthesis and carbohydrate metabolism, particularly the regulation of these processes in plants at the biochemical and molecular levels. My current research focuses on understanding how temperature and other abiotic stresses decrease photosynthetic performance in arid environments. I am also interested in the biochemical mechanisms of thermotolerance in homopteran insects and the regulatory and nutritional aspects of carbohydrate metabolism in these organisms.
