Biography

Ashley joined the CTCB in 2016 and she is interested in developing technologies that would allow for serial genetic improvement of vegetatively propagated crops. Her project is funded by the Horticulture Innovation Australia (HIA).

She graduated with a doctoral degree in Molecular Biology from The University of Adelaide studying the genes involved in the biosynthesis of cellulose in barley. Through her PhD, she developed skills in molecular biology, transgene expression analysis and microscopy. Following that, she conducted her postdoctoral research at KTH, Stockholm on the functional characterisation of fungal membrane protein to identify new drug target.

Ashley’s research interests are :

  • Plant Biotechnology
  • Vegetatively propagated crops
  • Disease resistance
  • Plant Cell Walls
