We are the Rhythms and Blooms lab!

Our research interests are in circadian rhythms in plants and humans, and the photoperiodic control of developmental transitions in plants, including flowering time. In particular we are interested in the regulation of the circadian clock in plants and the role of histone modification in rhythms; the role of the circadian clock in defence responses; the regulation of the floral transition and dormancy through photoperiod; the effect of circadian rhythms on performance in sports; circadian disruption and obesity.
