Saskia Birch


Originally from Dundee, Scotland, I did my undergraduate degree in Biological Sciences at the University of Edinburgh. Clearly desiring flatter pastures, I travelled down from the hills of Scotland to do a PhD in the lab of Dr Jeongmin Choi. My project is investigating how regulation of phosphate homeostasis in rice impacts the level of root colonisation by Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi.
