Improved crops for livestock and human consumption The University of Liverpool

My research interests focus on vegetable crop genetic improvement, applying trait genetics and plant breeding to address the growing needs of sustainable intensification for food security and improved nutrition. I have a particular interest in the use of landrace and crop wild relatives as sources of genetic variation that can be incorporated into pre-breeding material suitable for uptake by industry. At present, I am continuing to build research in plant stress resilience focusing on post-harvest senescence (primarily in brassicas), and insect resistance in brassicas and lettuce.
