Nature of Research Projects

I am not currently accepting applicants to the PhD program.

Pending sufficient funds in my research grants, new Macters projects in my lab will fall into three categories: (1) physiological mechanisms of metal tolerance in plants, (2) transfer of metals from soils to plants, and (3) plant-microbe interactions in the rhizosphere.
