Plant-parasitic interactions

After completing my BSc and MSc degrees in Horticultural Science, I graduated from the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in 2021. During my BSc, I studied the benefits of coconut water on both plant and human cells, and studied interspecific hybrids of Lepidium during my MSc. My interest in plant pathology also led me to undertake practical research training during my degree, where I studied Phytophthora infestans in fluctuating diurnal temperatures.

After a brief stint in the pharmaceutical industry doing analytical chemistry, microbiological control, and project development, I am now working as a Research Laboratory Technician in the Plant-Parasite Interactions Group led by Dr. Sebastian Eves-van den Akker. I am excited to contribute to the group's development and goal of understanding more about the host:plant-parasitic nematode biology.
