Research Assistant Genes in the Environment

Karen’s research focusses on understanding how differential growth can generate complex 3D shapes, such as those of carnivorous plant traps.

She uses a combination of genetics, Optical Projection Tomography, and confocal microscopy to observe and measure bladderwort trap development in 3D, using Utricularia gibba as a model system.

Karen has worked closely with computer scientists to analyse this image data and mathematically model differential growth.
