Overview

Research Interests

  • Plant nutrient relations
    My interest is in exploring how plants access and use nutrients in both natural and agricultural systems. Understanding these processes at a range of scales from molecular to crop systems is essential in developing sustainable agriculture. I am currently focussed on characterising nitrogen use efficiency in sugarcane and other related C4 grasses.
