Biography

BSc in Agricultural Botany (1975), University College of Wales, Aberystwyth, UK.

PhD (Genetic analysis of nitrate reductase activity in wheat; 1979), University of Nottingham, UK.

Postdoctoral Researcher (1978-1980), Department of Biochemistry, University of Liverpool, UK (Operon analysis of ethanolamine catabolism in E.coli).

1980- present: University College, Cork, Ireland in the Department of Botany (1980-1986), Plant Science (1986-2002), Zoology, Ecology and Plant Science (2002-present), as College Lecturer (1980-1995), Senior Lecturer (1995-2001), Associate Professor (2001-present)

Research Interests

I lead a research team, currently 8-strong , funded from national and international funding bodies, including industry, which investigates applied problems of plant science at different levels: laboratory/glasshouse/field and molecular/cellular/whole-plant/ crop community. The principal research areas are as follows;

a). biotic and abiotic stress tolerance: chemical elicitation of stress tolerance (seaweed extracts, compost tea); design, synthesis of chemical partial structures to elicit increased stress tolerance; isolation, characterisation and analysis of mutants exhibiting cross-tolerance to biotic and abiotic stresses.

b). chemical communication between plants and other organisms: host-finding by specialist plant pests (e.g. PCN-potato) and pathogens, using host chemicals; pathogen-derived elicitors and induced resistance.

c). role of mycorrhizal fungi in modifying plant-stress responses (e.g. nematode attack.

d). -omics in crop improvement: functional genomics (forward genetics; microarray analysis of stress tolerance), structural genomics (identification of diagnostic markers for disease resistance in potato; marker-assisted selection), proteomics (2-D IEF-PAGE separation of proteins upregulated following induction of stress tolerance.

e). novel approaches to waste management: development of zero-dischange system for domestic wastewater treatment; development of value-added products, such as pest control products, pharmaceuticals, from plant-derived food waste streams

f). development of novel non-food crops, of particular relevance to Ireland: Adonis for astaxanthin for fish feed and human nutraceutical, Elaeagnus for lycopene production
