Brief bio: During my studies for a BSc in Genetics and Cell Biology in Dublin City University I was awarded an internship in the lab of Dr. Moritz Nowack. This was a great experience and really got me interested in plant science. After finishing my undergraduate degree I carried out a research masters investigating LEAFY function during flower development in Trinity College, Dublin. Following this I undertook a PhD in the lab of Dr. Emmanuelle Graciet in Maynooth University. My work here was focused on investigating the N-end rule degradation pathway in Arabidopsis and identifying novel substrates of the pathway involved in plant immunity. Currently I am working as a postdoctoral researcher in the lab of Dr. Frank Wellmer in Trinity College, Dublin. Here I am working on the function of different transcription factor complexes and the role that they play during early flower development.
