Want to do a postdoc or PhD work in my group in London? We are a motivated group of young scientists with interest in fundamental and applied research in seed biology and engineering. Explore this website for molecular mechanisms of seed traits such as germination, dormancy, longevity, and vigour, as well as for our projects on seed technology and seedling performance with seed industry. Just contact me by email about possibilities.
