Notes I am a Weed Molecular Biologist at Rothamsted Research. In my career I ask how plants chose the right molecular responses that allow them, or their offspring, to survive the challenges of their environment. I am currently applying my molecular genetics training (B.S., PhD and two post-doctoral positions) to agricultural weeds. At Rothamsted Research, I ask how the arable weed black-grass can thrive in the agri-environment, despite our best efforts to eradicate it. I am a woman setting up my own lab in which we use unbiased approaches to discover genes that underpin black-grass’ weediness and are establishing methods for hypothesis-led research to be done directly in black-grass.
