My research is focused mainly on integrating genomics into restoration. I am working on a number of projects which analyse the variation of genetic diversity within plant species vulnerable to climate change. I use this information to directly inform practitioners where to collect their seed for revegetation projects. I graduated from the University of Aberdeen in 2014 and before starting my PhD, I travelled and worked as a research assistant for various groups. Overall, I found that I was most interested in the actual application of science. This is why I love my project – I get to see the science all the way through, from the field collections in remote and exciting locations, all the way to seeing people use it to (hopefully!) improve restoration outcomes.
