Personal profile

Biography

I am a plant geneticist with a special interest in the regulation of flowering time and other phenological traits in narrow-leafed lupin and in legume crops more generally.

In my current role as a Graduate Research Assistant within The UWA Institute of Agriculture, I am a technician for a field-based project evaluating flowering time diversity in several narrow-leafed lupin genetic populations. These populations contain two new flowering time genes which have the potential to increase crop adaptation in mid-high rainfall environments and expand the genetic diversity of Australian varieties of lupin.
