Our research focuses on using genomic information to accelerate the rate of genetic gain in forage breeding programmes (perennial ryegrass and white clover). We want to develop high yielding and high quality pastures to support Irish Agriculture.

Research areas of interest for MSCA IF application:

  • Genomic selection in forages
  • Breeding for improved pasture yield and quality
  • Forage Genomics

I have supervised/co-supervised 4 PhD Students and several technicians and research assistants.
