Director Margot Forde Forage Germplasm Centre
I lead Margot Forde Genebank and collaborate with >30 organisations to find diversity in germplasm. My PhD (Plant Evolutionary Genetics, University of New England, Australia) was followed by two post-docs and Assistant Professorship (University of Western Australia). Senior Scientist-Phenomics (Department of Primary Industries, Victoria) was next before AgResearch (started 2014). I spend 50% of my time on MFGC and 50% on Agritech. I am an associate editor (Frontiers) and a guest editor (Plants).
