Research interests

I am interested in researching nematodes; C. elegans and G. pallida, looking at neurobiology and the relationship between them using drug treatments.

My research project focuses on the neurobiology of plant parasitic nematodes and further understanding the interaction between these nematodes and host plants.

Supervisor: Lindy Holden-Dye, Vincent O'Connor
PhD research: Chemical biology of the interaction between plants and pathogenic nematodes.
Funding:  Bayer CropScience.
