Biography

Ricky is a Research Scientist from the Gene Discovery team in the Crop Immunity Group at CSIRO Black Mountain. His research focuses on understanding the mechanism of the wheat Lr67 hexose transporter variant that confers broad-spectrum resistance to fungal pathogens, and exploiting the transferability of this resistance in order to introduce novel disease resistance other economically important crops. Previously, he investigated transport pathways and functionally characterised sweet sorghum sucrose transporters at The University of Newcastle, Australia.
