My research aims to combine molecular techniques with detailed physiological measurements (including time-lapse photography) to investigate how climatic changes and extreme weather events affect plant and flower development with a special focus on flower physiology, flower health and pollinator visits. We follow flowers from bud opening to seed development to assess the impact of these weather conditions may have on plant reproduction and potentially crop yield.
