I am interested in stomatal morphological and physiological responses to the atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide, water deficit and heat stress. My work involves the use of leaf gas exchange and chlorophyll fluorescence to quantify the diffusive and biochemical constraints to photosynthesis. These approaches can be utilised for phenotyping plant responses to abiotic stress. I also study the use of living plants to elucidate patterns in the leaf economics and palaeo-physiology of fossil plants.
