Project Title: Understanding the physiological and molecular basis of post-flowering N dynamics in barley to improve N use efficiency
Overview: I am a second year PhD student, working on understanding the physiological and molecular mechanism controlling N dynamics in barley. I joined SRUC having graduated with my MSc in Crop Improvement from the University of Nottingham. During this time I studied the drought potential in the underutilised Bambara groundnut legume crop. My main interest is plant physiology and plant nutrition. I found fascinating the physiological mechanisms that plants can adapt under different conditions.
