About Me

I am interested in understanding how plants regulate the mobilization, uptake, translocation, and storage of elements in different environments.

The focus of our attempts to study this question is Ionomics. We analyze the elemental content of 500-1000 samples per week using ICP-MS. To make sense of the data coming off the machine, we also need to collect data about the environment the plants were grown in and how the samples were processed. To record all this information, control the workflows, and store and analyze the data, we created the Purdue Ionomics Information Management System (PiiMS). This system has helped the great ionomics team I work with to map several genes important for elemental accumulation in Arabidopsis thaliana. But to really answer this question we will also need to understand how all the genes/transcripts/proteins/metabolites interact to control the ionome (all of the mineral elements in a cell, tissue, or organism).

I am also the Plant Biology section editor of PLoS ONE and a big supporter of Open Access.
