BSc Hons, MSc, PhD
Bridget is currently a member of the Oak Decline Research group at Forest Research and has drawn on her molecular pathology background to study plant-pathogen interactions in Acute Oak Decline (AOD) and to develop rapid diagnostic assays (qPCR, LAMP) for oak decline research.
Bridget joined Forest Research in 2018. She obtained her PhD in Botany from the University of Pretoria, South Africa, where after she joined the Forest and Agricultural Biotechnology Institute (FABI) as a Senior Lecturer from 2011 to 2017. Her research focussed on functional genomics of the maize fungal pathogen Exserohilum turcicum.
