I am a Royal Society funded post-doctoral research associate studying mechanisms of epigenetic reprogramming in plant regeneration. A key question I am trying to answer is how histone modifications are erased during cellular dedifferentiation to allow the epigenetic reactivation of stem cell genes. To answer this question, I employ diverse wet and dry lab techniques such as single cell RNA sequencing, proteomics, epigenomics, confocal microscopy, and traditional mutant phenotyping. 

I recently completed my PhD in the group of Dr Jie Song studying epigenetic reprogramming in Arabidopsis in other developmental processes. Previous research activities have involved investigating bio-electric phenomena in Arabidopsis with Dr Giovanni Sena during my MRes, investigating mosquito gene drive resistance under Dr Andrew Hammond during my BSc, and developing a novel synthetic biology tool under Dr John Heap.
