I am currently pursuing my doctoral studies at the University of Warwick.

My PhD title: Analysing the role of pathogen effector proteins in causing plant disease

Project outline: The study of oomycete plant pathogens has a significant economic importance. My project aims to investigate the roles of translocated pathogen effector proteins inside the plant cell and characterise the mechanisms involved that enable the pathogen to evade or otherwise suppress the host cell immune system. I am conducting specific experiments in Arabidopsis and yeast systems involving pathogen effector proteins and host cell targets.
