  • We are a team of interdisciplinary scientists working at the interface between plant biology and nanotechnology. We are developing and applying nanomaterial based tools to study and engineer plant physiological mechanisms at levels of organization ranging from organelles to tissues and whole plants. We are discovering how the distinct physical, chemical, and mechanical properties of nanoparticles affect their interactions with plant organelles and cellular structures. Using a plant nanobioengineering approach, we seek to turn plants into technology by enabling them with novel or augmented functions.
