Personal profile

Research interests

Emily graduated from the University of Bristol with a Msc in Biology in 2021. During the third year of her integrated masters, Emily completed work investigating how root hair structure aids adhesion to the soil. Then, for her fourth year, she worked on creating phylogenies describing how the process of hydrotopism may have evolved.
Building further upon her knowledge of plant roots so far, Emily will be working with Professor Claire Grierson for her PhD to understand how root exudates from wheat affect root soil interactions, with the aim of using this knowledge to prevent soil erosion. Emily's work will also involve a CASE placement at LettUs Grow, a vertical farm based in Bristol.
