Dmitri Nusinow, Ph.D.

Dmitri’s research is focused on understanding how the circadian clock is integrated with environmental signals to control growth, physiology and development. This increased understanding of the mechanisms underlying plant growth and development will help improve their use as feed, food and fuel stocks.
