Posts & Training I have been in the Department since 1989; for the first 3 years on a Royal Society University Research Fellowship, until I was appointed as a Lecturer. Before that I was a post-doc in Cambridge (at the then Plant Breeding Institute) having obtained my Ph.D. at University College London. Teaching My teaching in the Department is in the areas of genetics, molecular biology and plant biotechnology. I also have responsibility for organising the final year of the Biological degree schemes in the Department. I have a number of research students in these areas, and I would be pleased to receive applications from prospective students or visiting researchers on any of these subjects.
