Data Science Collaborative Research Programme 2021

In this project, we aim to investigate how the shapes of leaf cells contribute to the photosynthetic capacity of the leaf. Here, the morphology of cells inside the leaf creates airspaces where carbon dioxide and water vapour can diffuse to support photosynthesis. The leaf cell architecture is therefore likely influencing the diffusion and hence photosynthesis. This project is a truly inter-disciplinary program with three additional co-PI; Prof Zoran Nikoloski (University of Potsdam, DE), Assoc Prof Ala Trusina (Niels Bohr Institute) and Assoc Prof Johannes Kromdijk (University of Cambridge) as it integrates computational modelling/machine learning and plant biology.
