We study two major aspects of plant development: how it is shaped by spatiotemporal patterns of hormone signaling, and what are the ultimate cellular functions activated by hormones that lead to cell fates as disparate as proliferation, elongation or degeneration.

We investigate the genetic basis of phenotypic differences between the emerging model species Cardamine hirsuta and its relative Arabidopsis thaliana and examine the evolutionary processes underlying such differences. We focus on petal number variation and explosive pod shatter, which are traits found in C. hirsuta but not A. thaliana, and use parallel genetic studies to investigate the evolution of developmental processes controlling these traits.

Our main focus of our computational research group is combining algorithm development and integration of novel high-throughput technologies, with its actual application in plant biology. For this we explore the latest technologies in genomics, including long-read sequencing and genome mapping methods, develop methods and apply them to the current questions in plant genomics. Our main working models are Brassicaceae species - a plant family with a large variety of crop species and model organisms.
