Research Overview

My research centres around plant biotic and abiotic stress responses with particular focus on regulation and signalling at the molecular level.

I have recently been employed on DEFRA and BBSRC funded projects studying the efficacy and molecular and biochemical processes underpinning the phenomenon of seed priming.
