Currently, my research focuses on submergence tolerance in wetland plants (including rice Oryza sativa) and some the special features - leaf gas films - they have evolved to facilitate CO2 exhange with the floodwater during the day and O2 to sustain aerobic respiration during the night. The research is funded by The Danish Council for Independent Research | Natural Sciences.

Eco-physiology of isoetids is also a high priority for me and this research is funded by CLEAR, a Villum Kann Rasmussen Centre of Excellence.
