My career in Plant Science has taken me across Europe and into several different research topics. I have been fortunate enough to work with many inspiring mentors in the UK, Spain and the Netherlands. I have previously worked in the labs of Matthew Terry, Kerry Franklin, Ronald Pierik and Salomé Prat. My current position is in Christa Testerink's group at Wageningen University & Research.
My research focuses on the environmental control of plant development. I aim to uncover both how warm temperature modulates root system architecture and whether there any physiological benefit of this response
