Summary of pre-print by Plantae

I enjoy conducting research on the plant-fungal symbiosis known as arbuscular mycorrhizas, especially investigating how they can improve plant zinc and phosphorus nutrition on nutrient-depleted soils. I am particularly interested in the potential agricultural applications of arbuscular mycorrhizas, and use important crops as model species in my research.

I’m currently an ARC DECRA Fellow and University of Adelaide Future Making Fellow at the Waite Research Institute. Previously I worked at the New South Wales Department of Primary Industires for a year, and completed a four-year independent Fellowship at The University of Adelaide in 2020.

Before that, I worked as a Postdoc with Prof Maria Harrison at the Boyce Thompson Institute in New York,  after completing my PhD at Monash University in Australia in 2015.
