Nutrient perception and capture


I am PhD student working with both the Plant Nutrient and Capture Group at the Crop Science Centre and the Plant Transformation team at NIAB. My research is based on improving nutrient use efficiency of cereal crops, focusing on the role of plant hormones, including Brassinosteroids, in direct and symbiotic nutrient uptake. I received my BSc in Natural Sciences from Durham University, before receiving my MSc from the University of Amsterdam in Biological Sciences - Green Life Sciences. Between my masters and my PhD I worked in the crop protection industry.
