  • Research Interests (300 words)
    I am a plant scientist, with special interest in the functional anatomy of plants. I have done research on hydraulic architecture of woody plants and plant biomechanics. Also, I do research on the eco-physiology of plant parasites. On the applied side of my work, I am the co-inventor of a new way to control parasite plants. With a Brazilian colleague, we developed a compound that causes the wilting of the parasite, without damaging the tree host. We apply this stuff with a gotcha applicator.
