Tracy is a Root Biologist at the James Hutton Institute in Dundee. Her current research interests include:
- Root trait responses to soil physical conditions, including changes in border cell production, exudate production, changes in root meristem and overall root structure.
- Variation in responses to physical constraints between barley mutants and cultivars.
- Utilisation of confocal microscopy and computer vision techniques to develop tools for measuring cell expansion and root elongation.
