Cereal symbioses

I’m a PhD student working in Uta Paszkowski's Cereal Symbiosis group where I will be investigating the role of specific root types in phosphorus uptake in roots. My work will look at both the symbiotic and asymbiotic pathways with a focus on the phosphate transporters. 

Prior to starting my PhD I did my MSci in plant sciences at the University of Bristol in Jill Harrison’s lab where I worked on the evolution of meristem signalling.
