Victoria (Tory) Clarke

Tory’s research used next-generation approaches to exploit phenotypic variation in photosynthesis efficiency to increase wheat yield.

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.

Tory was part of the Centre from 2017 to 2021
