Overview

My research is focused on cell physiology and molecular biology of ion channels and signalling. My specific research aims include:

  • Understanding how some aquaporins function as both water and ion channels.
  • Discovering new blockers of AQP water channels.
  • Exploring the mechanisms of GABA  signalling and regulation.
  •  Berry shrivel and cell death in Vitis vinifera.
