Research Summary

The plant hormone auxin regulates many aspects of growth and development. My research addresses how a small molecule with a simple signaling pathway leads to such diverse and complex developmental responses. In particular I am examining how auxin signaling activates gene networks that specify lateral root fate. Using synthetic systems, I examine auxin signaling dynamics and how this impacts transcription.
