Current Research

Identification of plant defence mechanisms induced by environmental stresses and elicitors (e.g. rhizobacteria, pests, herbicides). I utilise a range of quantitative genetics and molecular biology and modelling techniques to identify plant genes and quantify their involvement in defence mechanims.
