Research Interests

I obtained my BSc at the University of Greenwich and MSc at the University of Kent. My background is in Biochemistry, Molecular biology and Proteomics. My research interest is in strawberry resistance against powdery mildew, focusing on three key research goals:

1. Pathology test and advanced image analysis for powdery mildew on strawberry fruits
2. Genome-wide association analysis and identification of candidate resistance genes
3. Validation of strawberry resistance genes through gene deletion

With the supervision of Dr Helen Cockerton and Dr Bo Li at NIAB EMR, Professor Jim Dunwell at the University of Reading,
