Ricky is a postdoctoral researcher from Evans Lagudah’s team in the Cereal Rust Group at 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 to other economically important crops. Previously, he investigated transport pathways and functionally characterised sweet sorghum sucrose transporters at The University of Newcastle, Australia.
