Brief bio: My interests lie in the mechanisms how plants sense and respond to environmental changes. Since I got PhD in 2003, I have been working to understand the molecular mechanisms that underlie the regulatory mechanism of efficient nitrogen acquisition and utilization of plants and plant hormone biology especially focusing on cytokinin using Arabidopsis thaliana and Oryza sati
