I am a Plant Biologist and Ecologist who studies the mechanisms which may underpin the design of more sustainable systems. I have a special focus on the role of biological nitrogen fixation by legumes, including the use of rhizobial, AMF and PGPR based inoculum. These interests also extend to applied research in native seed science and biotechnology. My interests are focused on the utility of legumes in production and semi-natural systems. Towards these ends, I enjoy very good working relationships with a wide range of academic and industrial partners, and also non-governmental organisations and to whom I am very grateful.
