Personal profile


I am a plant geneticist interested in the application of molecular biology for crop improvement. My passion for legumes led me to studying the regulation of flowering time in narrow-leafed lupin during my PhD. In my current role as a Research Associate for the Australian Herbicide Resistance Initiative (AHRI), I am focusing on auxin herbicde responses in wild radish and am slowly emersing myself in the field of plant biochemistry.

Current projects

Does plasma membrane perception of 2,4-D influence auxin resistance?
