I am a Biology graduate from the University of Nottingham and am currently studying for my PhD in Plant Pathology. I work on the molecular basis of phytoplasma diseases, including how phytoplasmas cause phyllody.
Articles I plan (the best laid plans of mice and men) to work on include those in the areas of plant pathology, molecular biology, genetics, actors and whatever take my fancy. I will also probably trek around adding plot summaries to any books I have particularly enjoyed.
I am not very good at spelling and grammar, and have user:lipwig proof read articles after I have made major edits to them. I always appreaciate people beta-reading my articles.
I'm happy to upload pictures I have taken and also those that constitute fair use and adding fair use rationales to screenshots as well. I get an odd enjoyment out of resizing images in Non-free Wikipedia file size reduction request.
