We are interested in the mechanisms and function of catabolic processes during plant development, aging and stress response at the molecular, cellular and organismal levels.

Our research is funded by the SLU, the VR, the Swedish Strategic Foundation, the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, the Olle Engkvist Foundation and the Pehrssons fond.
