Siriwat Boonchaisiri joined the lab as a doctoral student.
Siriwat hails from Thailand. He will be working on 
understanding the role of protein trafficking 
pathways in regulating the high temperature stress in
plants. A warm welcome to him !!

Plant Hormone Biology
The primary research interest of my lab lies in understanding the hormonal regulation of plant growth and development under optimum condition and various stresses. For this, we are primarily focusing on the plant hormone auxin, which influences plant behavior from embryogenesis to senescence and exhibits complex interactions with other hormones.
