Protecting Crops and the Environment
Hannah is a PhD student at Rothamsted Research and the University of Nottingham, as part of the BBSRC-funded DTP programme. Her research interests are in crop protection/plant pathology. In completing an integrated masters degree at the University of Nottingham Hannah has carried out projects quantifying expression of defence-related genes after UV-C light exposure in tomato plants and tested a novel set of LAMP primers for identifying Phytoplasmas infecting Madagascan periwinkle plants. At Rothamsted she is undertaking rotations in understanding the molecular basis of disease resistance to Zymoseptoria in wheat and modelling take-all disease.
