About Me

Welcome to my web-site, I am a PhD student at the University of Sheffield, studying in the Department of Animal and Plant Sciences. These pages are here to give you an overview of the research which I am conducting for my PhD and also to provide you with a little information about me.

My project is titled “Understanding the Molecular Mechanisms Underlying Gall Formation in Plasmodiophora brassicae Infected Arabidopsis thaliana”. See the research page for further details.

I am supervised by Dr Stephen Rolfe, Professor Julie Scholes and Professor Andrew Fleming. Funding is provided by a departmental studentship. If you have any questions feel free to email me:
