I grew up in Cape Town, South Africa, where I completed my undergrad and postgrad degrees at the University of Cape Town. My PhD research centred on investigating regulation of an auxin biosynthetic gene during the plant salinity stress response. My postdoc project involves screening 150 African rice varieties for a breeding program to identify lines that exhibit enhanced drought tolerance upon mycorrhizal fungal colonisation. Thereafter, we aim to uncover the mechanism by which this occurs.
