PhD student in Plant Sciences at Cambridge working on dissecting the molecular basis of C4 photosynthesis. Formerly plant biologist, data analyst, bioinformatician and programmer at the Millennium Seed Bank.
My expertise is in plant biology, especially:
- Seed biology, dormancy and germination
- C4 photosynthesis and carbon fixation/concentrating mechanisms in general
- Environmental plant physiology
- Molecular biology of plant organogenesis, i.e. organ patterning, auxin, shoot and root branching
I write software in Objective-C and Python, and I have some experience with JS and data vis libraries like the beautiful D3.js, and with R.
If you tag a question with plant-physiology or botany, it will get my attention.
