Gabriel Cornic was a professor at the Laboratoire d’écophysiologie des plantes at the Faculté des sciences d’Orsay (université Paris sud XI). His work has focused on photoinhibition, the rapid effects of water stress on foliar photosynthesis (including electron flows between IEHP and PSI) and the inhibition of respiration by light. He is currently still working in the plant ecophysiology laboratory where his three areas of interest have been: the study of cyclic electron flows around PSI in plants suffering from drought, the examination of the regulation of PTO (plastidial terminal oxidase) in alpine plants and the inhibition of respiration by light.
