Dr Alexander Watson-Lazowski is a Senior Lecturer in Crop Production, whose research expertise lies in topics related to plant metabolism. In particular, Dr Watson-Lazowski is interested in the dynamics of transient carbohydrate metabolism, and how this can be related back to beneficial agronomical traits (such as abiotic and biotic stress resistance). In addition, research related to the application of plant biostimulants is on-going within the Watson-Lazowski lab. Research within the Watson-Lazowski lab is largely carried out on UK crop species, but there is also parallel work utilising wild grass species to mine for beneficial natural diversity.
Dr Watson-Lazowski is the primary supervisor on the below projects:
