Dr Ross Carter

Postdoctoral Scientist
Veronica Grieneisen
Computational and Systems Biology

My research is currently focused on investigating the biological and physical processes underpinning leaf development.

To achieve this, I use a combination of approaches: mathematical and computational methods and experiments with the model plant Arabidopsis.

My current research interests include, but are not limited to:

  • Developmental Biology
  • Cell polarity
  • Pattern Formation
  • Plant biomechanics
  • Biophysics
  • Image analysis
  • Instrumentation development
  • Software development

My past research has included:
