Research Interests

|I am a PhD student under the supervision of Dr Richard Harrison, EMR and Dr Rob Jackson at the University of Reading.  My project title is “The molecular basis of pahtogenicicity of Neonectria ditissima.  The aim is to provide fundamental insights into the molecular basis of pathogenicity in N.ditissima, the causative agent of apple canker.

I hold an MSc in Advanced Biotechnology (2012) from the Science Faculty at the University of Malaga, Spain, and an a BsC in Biology (2010) from the Experimental Science Faculty at the University of Jaén, Spain.
