Contact Details


I am a group leader and UKRI Future Leaders Fellow, based in IBERS. My general research interests are polyploidy, meiosis, DNA repair and gene editing, all processes which generate new DNA sequences or sequence arrangements, providing the raw material for evolution. My current research focuses on developing technologies to help increase the pace of plant breeding.
