Dr Uriel Urquiza-García, PDRA, Systems and Synthetic Biology,  jurquiza@ed.ac.uk  Twitter @Uurquiza

Uriel's research focuses in integrating circadian clock dynamics and phytochrome signaling. He uses synthetic and systems biology approaches for generating and integrating highly quantiative data into thoeretical work.

Dr Andrés Romanowski (a.k.a. Andrew), PDRA, biotechnologist Andrew.Romanowski@ed.ac.uk Twitter @AndruRomanowski

Andres Romanowski

Andy’s research focuses on how phytochrome (and circadian clock) signalling affects plant architecture.

Dr Johanna Krahmer, PDRA, biologist johanna.krahmer@ed.ac.uk

Johanna’s research focuses on how phytochrome signalling and carbon metabolism interact to control plant biomass production.

PhD Students

Ammad Abbas, Darwin Trust Postgraduate Student, biologist ammad.abbas@ed.ac.uk

Ammad is interested in how the phytochrome pathways operate in the natural environment. 

Ejaz Hussain, Postgraduate Student, biologist Hussain.Ejaz@ed.ac.uk

Ejaz's research focuses on understanding the molecular mechanisms that control organ growth and development in canopy shade

Matthew Lincoln, Darwin Trust Postgraduate Student, biologist matt.lincoln@ed.ac.uk

Matthew's research focuses on the convergence of light and sugar signaling.

Rist Van de Weyer, Darwin Trust Postgraduate Student, biologist R.Van-De-Weyer@sms.ed.ac.uk

Rist is particularly interested in how Phytochrome Interacting Factors operate in Soybean and might improve crop architecture.

Marissa Valdivia Cabrera, CONACyT Postgraduate Student, biotechnologist M.Valdivia-Cabrera@sms.ed.ac.uk

Marissa is interested in the ecological relevance of phytochrome sensor-signalling.

Philip Butlin, EASTBIO Postgraduate Student, biologist phil.butlin@ed.ac.uk

Phil's research focuses on how phytochromes interact with the circadian clock to regulate plant development.
