My main area of interest is genetics; currently I am applying bioinformatics to examine plant genomes to see how plant breeding can be improved. I am just completing my Masters in the University of Southampton. As part of my degree I have carried out gene expression analysis of eggplant (aubergine) in order to identify genes involved in thorn formation in eggplant.

My project in Davis will involve assembling sequenced genome of watercress, in order to improve breeding program.
