My research group is interested in the field of photosynthesis with focus on two topics:
(1) Structure and function of photosynthetic pigments and apparatus, and
(2) Developing spectroscopy and imaging methods for in vivo pigments analysis.
I am mainly interested to study marine microorganisms and marine resources, but also open to plant research.
