Welcome To the Lab!

Our lab is working to develop the next generation of high-performance computational tools that can allow for realistic simulation of plant systems, and support decision-making in the field. Our focus has been on the coupling of mechanistic, physics-based transport models with biological models.

Cutting-edge simulation tools typically also require cutting-edge field data to support them. As such, we also design and perform novel field experiments.
