I work as a research assistant in the Borrill Group. My research focuses on contributing to the understanding of how homoeologue expression is controlled in wheat, through the generation and characterisation of mutant populations. Additionally, I assist with other projects in the group as required.
Before joining the Borrill Group I studied Biology at the University of Southampton, where I discovered my specific interest in plants. I subsequently decided to pursue a masters’ degree in Plant Genetics and Crop Improvement at UEA/JIC. Combined with over two years of industry experience working at KWS, I have broad experience of field trials, organising crossing blocks and working with large plant populations.
