In July 2015 I joined the Braybrook Group as a Research Assistant. My research interests have always been centred on the area of plant development. Currently my main focus within the laboratory is understanding the wave of growth in etiolated hypocotyls with an emphasis on cell wall mechanics and the role of Auxin.
Bachelor’s Degree (Hons) in Biochemistry at the University of Warwick. My final year project was on
“The role of Flowering Locus T (FT) expression in Brassica oleracea (Broccoli)”
Master’s Degree in Plant Genetic Manipulation at the University of Nottingham. “The analysis of genes associated with pollen and anther development” was the title of my research project under the supervision of Professor Zoe Wilson.
Doubled Haploid Technician at Syngenta which involved the production of doubled haploid (DH) wheat for Syngenta European breeding programmes. The role enabled me to gain a commercial aspect to research and an insight into the final goals for sustainability.
