Research Interests & Activities

Research interests are in the field of in vitro plant breeding with particular focus on interspecific hybridisation, and ploidy manipulation (inducing haploids and polyploids). A particular interest is based on identifying opportunities to reduce the time taken to deliver novelty into and from breeding programs. Also interested in exploring the barriers to commercialisation of outputs from biotechnology research.
