I am interested in ecology, specifically the impact of cultivation practices on the evolution of plant traits. My masters project examines the unconscious selection pressures that increased seed size in domesticated plants, relative to their wild relatives. I aim to test if large seed size increases the competitive ability of wheat plants, through density manipulation experiments.
