I am studying the mechanism and role of small RNA movement in plants. Small RNAs travel between organelles and cells by vesicle trafficking, thereby regulating gene expression.
Current Projects:
  • Characterization of exosome-like vesicles from maize pollen and their potential role in sRNA trafficking
  • sRNA vesicle trafficking and haploid induction
  • Role of zinc transporters in vesicle trafficking
