Main roles and responsibilities
My work focuses on increasing diversity and resilience in agricultural systems, particularly within crops at a genetic level. I am developing this area within the crops team; studying the ORC Wakelyns Population and working on the LIVESEED and DIVERSify H2020 projects.
I am interested in developing an improved understanding of how ecological and evolutionary responses can be quantified to promote their successful integration in land management for agricultural productivity, sustainability and conservation.
