Research Interests: The prime interest of the Kleine-Vehn group are foundational questions, addressing cell size determination and differential growth in plants. Ongoing research aims at a comprehensive understanding of plant growth from a subcellular to organ scale. The group deciphers plant architectural aspects that have importance for agriculturally important traits.
