I am a plant physiologist interested in the transport of water through plants. Plants are dependent on water for survival and their ability to acquire water from the soil and transport it throughout the plant is determined by the hydraulic properties of the plant’s tissues. For example, I am interested in how the anatomical characteristics of the conducting cells determine the resistance to water flow through the tissues. I am particularly interested in computer modeling or mathematical approaches to studying transport processes.
