Plant development at cellular level and from a biomechanical point of view. Focus is on the mechanical principles governing cell morphogenesis and the logistics of cytoskeleton-mediated intracellular transport involved in cell wall assembly. Cell biology, live imaging and electron microscopy are combined with micromechanical experimentation and theoretical modeling.
