Our research seeks to understand how shifts in energy and nutrient flows between symbiotic organisms influences individuals and ultimately communities
We specialise in the physiology and ecology of host-symbiont interactions, specifically plant-fungal symbioses and plant-parasitic plant symbioses using a combination of metabolomics, isotope tracers and molecular biology to study:

1.  Soil biology including carbon and mineral fluxes through mycorrhizal networks in natural and agro-ecosystems.

2.  Microorganisms in sustainable agro ecosystems - Harnessing beneficial microbes for crop production (provisioning of nutrients) and crop protection (inducible plant defenses).

3.  The physiology and functional ecology of host-parasitic plant interactions
