Plant Physiology and Biochemistry (Photosynthesis, carbon an nitrogen metabolism in higher plants, source sink regulation, plant response to climate change)
crop Response to Climate Change (grain quality, plant growth and development)
Saman conducts research into understanding the climate stress on crop physiological process aiming to increases the crop yield potential and quality. He uses range of techniques including genetics, proteomics, metabolomics, and ionomics to identify new physiological and molecular markers for crop improvement.
Saman is happy to supervise research students in the area of crop science, plant physiology and biochemistry. Saman's main research focus is on the impact of climate change on cereal physiology and grain chemistry. If you are interested, Saman is happy to disuse about available student projects.
