Areas of Expertise:
plant transformation, RNAi feeding assays, transcriptomics, expression analysis

Research Organisms:
Lipaphis erysimi, Brassica juncea

 

Research Focus:

Aphids are important crop pests. Understanding plant-aphid interactions can give great insights into not only aphid biology, but also methods of crop-protection. My focus is on using transcriptomics and functional genomics in order to develop improved plant variety using RNAi.
