I am a PhD student in Giles Oldroyd's group, studying virus-induced gene editing in potato with the aim to use this tool to dissect plant-microbe symbioses, in particular with arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi. 

I did my undergraduate integrated masters degree in Biology at the University of Oxford, working in the van der Hoorn lab on plant proteases involved in immunity to bacterial and oomycete pathogens.
