PhD student in the Hüner Lab
I am PhD student in the Huner Lab studying the role of the chloroplast as a sensor of environmental change and as a source of signals regulating acclimation. I am interested in the role of this sensor as a regulator of the structure and function of the photosynthetic apparatus associated with acclimation to a variable light environment in the unicellular green alga Chlorella vulgaris.
