Plant-mediated interactions between above-and below-ground crop pests: molecular and biochemical mechanisms

I am studying for a PhD focussing on plant-mediated interactions between above-ground pests and below-ground pathogens in Prof. Peter Urwin’s laboratory at The University of Leeds and in collaboration with Prof. Sue Hartely at The University of York. I completed my BSc Botany & Plant Science at The National University of Ireland, Galway and completed my MSc in Plant Science and Biotechnology at the University of Leeds.
