The overall goal of my research is to understand how plant intracellular membrane trafficking is regulated as cell morphology changes during plant development and in response to environmental stresses. We are using a GFP-based living cell imaging technology combined with genetic approaches to study how plant genes control these important processes. Another research we are interested is to use reverse genetic and chemical genomic approaches to study the molecular regulation and function of very-long-chain fatty acid (VLCFA) biosynthesis and secretion in the production of waxes, seed oils, and sphingolipids.
