Cambridge Global Food Security

An Interdisciplinary Research Centre at the University of Cambridge


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.
