My research interests are in understanding the genetic architecture of key traits for the improvement of white clover.
Main current projects include:
- Molecular characterisation of white clover response to drought
- Molecular characterization of stoloniferous growth
- Effects of inter-specific hybridisation and polyploidisation on gene expression and genome architecture
- Evolution of white clover
