Career returner

After a 12 year break from research I returned in 2016 with the help of a Daphne Jackson Trust Fellowship sponsored by the Biochemical Society.

I am now co-investigator on a 3 year BBSRC research grant looking at the contribution of the Meristem Defective gene, a splicing factor, to root meristem development in Arabidopsis.

Research interests

  • My research interests lie in exploring further the role of pre-mRNA splicing in plant genomes to regulate gene expression.
