Tory Clarke – IWYP

Tory’s research uses next generation approaches to exploit phenotypic variation in photosynthesis efficiency to increase wheat yield. She is working with John Evans and Bob Furbank as part of the International Wheat Yield Partnership (IWYP). This project is in conjunction with the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Centre (CIMMYT) in Mexico.
Tory has a diverse plant science research background, researching in areas such as plant hormone biosynthesis, legume nodulation and most recently nitrogen allocation in plant leaf cells using proteomics to determine absolute quantification of cellular protein components.

Tory obtained her B.Biotech (Hon) at the University of Tasmania in 2008 and her PhD in Plant Molecular Biology at the University of Sydney in 2014.
