Angharad (Harry) did her PhD research on the role of auxin in root hair development with Colin Lazarus and Claire Grierson. This resulted in several major new insights into root hair development. For the last year Harry has been working as a post doc in the Grierson lab supported by a one year fellowship that she won from the Lady Emily Smyth Agricultural Research Station. In February 2010 Harry will move to the Friml lab in Ghent.
