Dr Yazhou Chen

Postdoctoral Scientist Plant Health

Yazhou is excited about studying the interactions of plants and insect herbivores.

Yazhou currently works on the green peach aphid Myzus persicae, which is a polyphagous insect pest that is used as a model to investigate how insect herbivores modulate plant processes.

He is interested to better understand how this aphid can rapidly colonise a wide range of plant species.
