Research Interests

My main interest lies in plant breeding and the deeper understanding of the genetic inheritance of traits in plants. I have a particular interest in hops; both from a cultural and horticultural aspect, and my work at NIAB EMR includes developing genetic tools to aid the UK hop breeding.
