Research Interest:    Plant Biochemistry, Plant Stress Science, Abiotic Stress, Plant Molecular Biology, Stomatal Signalling.  (The population of the earth is rapidly increasing and climate changes also put a great burden on food production. Environmental stresses, such as drought, high salinity, extreme temperatures, and pollutants are the factors affecting yield and stability of crop production, thereby threatening sustainable agriculture. Our team has interest in (i) searching new exogenous protectants and studying the roles of plant growth regulators, and their interactions in abiotic stress responses; (ii) plant response to various stresses and the tolerance mechanisms; (iii) screening abiotic stress-tolerant plants based of phenotyping, biochemical and molecular study. As well as (iv) studying the stomatal response to phytohormones and various stresses and elucidating the guard cell signaling cascades.)
