My research focuses on the molecular mechanisms underpinning how nutrient signalling regulates arbuscular mycorrhizal symbiosis in crops. The long-term goal of my research is to help improve crop nutrient uptake to limit our dependency on environmental costly fertilisers. I believe my research will provide solutions to global food security at a minimal financial and environmental cost.
