Julie Gray is a professor, and the Director of Research and Innovation, in the School of Biosciences at the University of Sheffield. She is interested in understanding plant environmental signalling responses, particularly those that control the opening or closing of stomatal pores, or that determine how many stomata develop on the leaf surface. Her research group have identified and manipulated the expression of stomatal signalling genes to create crops with enhanced water use efficiency, drought and salinity tolerance.
