Photosynthesis provides energy for nearly all life on Earth.

As humans increasingly change this planet, it is essential that we understand this process and the organisms that perform it. Our lab aims to accelerate our understanding of photosynthetic organisms by developing and applying novel functional genomics strategies in the green alga Chlamydomonas. In the long term, our work contributes to engineering efforts that leverage photosynthetic organisms to address the challenges that our civilization faces in agriculture, health and energy.
