Suzanne joined NIAB EMR in 2018 as Assistant Molecular Breeder in the Genetics, Genomics and Breeding department. Her work focuses on marker-assisted breeding of apple and pear rootstocks, conventional breeding of Rubus, and pest and disease resistance screening in apple and Rubus. Suzanne also manages the DNA Fingerprinting Service.
