Research Interests

Driven by making positive, impactful contributions to society, I am interested in studying plant responses and adaptations to salinity tolerance with views to develop salt-tolerant crop species for improved agricultural productivity in salt-affected soils. My research focuses on applying novel forward genetics approaches for the discovery of naturally occurring salinity tolerances alleles within wild relatives of crop species, such as the wild tomato Solanum pimpinellifolium.
