Overview

Current Work

I develop novel tools for selective breeding to improve the sustainability and security of “plant-derived” food production systems. I am achieving this through the mitigation of biotic and abiotic factors that impact yield and quality and the optimization of resource inputs used for their management. In particular, I am researching the application of next generation sequencing and transcriptomics to understand salinity and drought tolerance mechanisms, fungal pathogen population dynamics and the genetic pathways enabling fungal pathogen resistances in temperate legume and broad acre crops.
