Dr. He Jie obtained her Ph.D. from Macquarie University, Australia in 1991. She is currently an Associate Professor at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. She has more than 30 years of research experience in plant physiology. She has been actively involved in the research on responses of plants to environmental stresses (temperature, drought, light, UVB radiation). Her research interests are 1) photosynthesis (chlorophyll fluorescence, Rubisco protein); 2) shoot-root communication (C partitioning, nutrient uptake and N metabolism; 3) effects of root-zone temperature on aeroponically grown temperate crops in the tropics; 4) impacts of LED quality and quantity on photosynthesis and vegetable production.
