My current interest is on how various forms of biological stress induce responses in a photosynthetic organism. The current emphasis is to document differences in the redox related chemistry and gene expression in the cyanobacterium Synechocystis 6803 that allow survival in the presence of various applied stresses. These stresses include changes in light availability, water, salt and micronutrient content of the environment.
