Professor, School of Biological Sciences at the University of Western Australia
After gaining a BSc (Hons) in Biology from the University of Bristol, I was awarded an MSc from the University of Durham. I undertook my PhD studies at Long Ashton Research Station and was awarded my PhD from the University of Bristol, UK in 2001. After a short postdoc at the University of Bristol I moved to Australia in 2002, as a senior research scientist at DPI-Victoria. I returned to academia in 2007, leading a research group at the University of Queensland as an ARC QEII Research Fellow. In 2014 I moved to the University of Western Australia to undertake my ARC Future Fellowship and I currently lead a research group in crop genetics and genomics in the School of Biological Sciences, with a focus on disease resistance in Brassicas.
