I received my PhD at the University of Bath, where my research focused on the pollen-stigma recognition signalling system. I functionally characterised a family of pollen-derived cysteine-rich proteins playing important role in mediating pollen-stigma compatibility in Brassicaceae. I joined Aberystwyth University in 2017 as a Post-doctoral Research Associate working with Dr Maurice Bosch. By utilising engineered Arabidopsis thaliana plants, I employed genetic tools to investigate the downstream intracellular signalling network of the self-incompatibility system in Papaver rhoeas (field poppy).
