I am a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Illinois, where I ask questions about plants, photosynthesis and climate change. I am currently working with the Realizing Increased Photosynthetic Efficiency (RIPE) project to harness advances in photosynthesis research to facilitate yield increases of staple food crops in developing countries.
