Research Interests

My current project investigates the molecular mechanisms underlying agriculturally relevant root to root interactions between commercial varieties of wheat and a competing weed. The focal weed species is black grass (Alopecurus myosuroides) since a low density of this species can lead to a 5% decrease in wheat yield and herbicide resistance is problematic in the UK.
