Irene

Research Fellow

My research focuses on the introduction of exotic germplasm into, as well as exchange of germplasm between, wheat breeding schemes using a 4-part strategy. Next to this, I work on the genomic evaluation of cultivated groundnuts with the aim to increase yield and disease resistance. My PhD was with the University of Nottingham and SRUC and studied the genetic and genomic background of methane emission and feed efficiency in dairy cattle. I did my BSc and MSc at Wageningen University. During my MSc thesis I investigated multiple ways of imputation, and breeding values obtained using imputed genotypes in dairy cattle.

My biggest research interest is the use of genetic and genomic data to evolve towards a more sustainable agricultural sector.
