Biography:

Danica works in the field of plant biochemistry, currently focusing on plant growth regulators. While at AHRI, she has investigated the mechanisms of dormancy release and maintenance in annual ryegrass seeds, particularly in relation to the interaction between light and dormancy-mediating hormones. She is also working on characterising the biochemical basis of resistance to the auxinic herbicide 2,4-D in wild radish.
