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
