Current Research

I'm a plant ecophysiologist so I'm interested in how plants respond to their environment. In particular my lab studies adventitious (stem) root physiology from regulation of their formation and emergence to differences in anatomy and how they take up water and nutrients.

Key projects:

Functional differences between maize root types. Funded by Nottingham Research Fellowship, Rank Prize New Lecturer award, BBSRC DTP Studentship.

Plants on the Pill: Crop root responses to wastewater pharmaceuticals. Funded by Agriculture and Food Security Research Priority Area pump priming grant

Apple root physiology. Funded by CTP PhD studentship in collaboration with NIAB-EMR.

Woody cutting propagation. Funding currently under negotiation.
