Research Interests

I am an ecological geneticist interested in understanding how genetic variation and ecology interact in plant populations and communities. I also have an interest in the conservation of long-term collections and experiments as a resource for research.

I am currently working on the UK Vegetable Genebank project, which conserves a collection of around 14,000 vegetable crops and related wild species. My role particularly focuses on the data management of the collection, as well as carrying out research to better understand the genetic diversity contained within the collection. Currently I am focused on studying the patterns of genetic diversity in our carrot collections.

My PhD was completed at the University of Liverpool working with Dr Raj Whitlock. My research used a long-term climate manipulation experiment to understand whether plants will evolve in response to climate change, and whether this will be sufficient to allow them to persist as conditions change.
