Dr Catherine Gardener

Support Specialist Designing Future Wheat

Catherine is currently assisting members of the Dr Brande Wulff lab in management of wild wheat lines and seedstocks in order to distribute material to global collaborators.

She has a background in researching plant thermosensory and disease resistance mechanisms and is particularly interested in the applications of research towards crop improvement.

Specifically, Catherine is really interested in the potential of the wild wheat accessions she is managing within this project to enhance agronomic traits in cultivated wheat.
