Research Focus:

The Cardoso lab is located in the Crop and Soil Sciences department of the NC State University. In this lab, researchers and students are interested in various plant physiological processes - from water transport to photosynthesis - and how they are affected by abiotic stressors. Studies are performed utilizing several crops, including woody and herbaceous. Plants are cultivated in either greenhouse or field conditions. A wide diversity of specialized techniques is employed, including measurements of leaf gas exchange, plant hydraulics, quantification of hormones, plant growth, and leaf senescence.
