Mahima is a postdoctoral fellow with the Weed Science Research Group at The University of Adelaide. Her current research focus is on understanding the evolutionary dynamics of summer weed resistance to pre-emergent herbicides and genetic characterisation of 2,4-D herbicide resistance in wild radish, sow thistle and Indian hedge mustard.
