Meg Willans

PhD Student

Meg graduated with Honours in 2021, majoring in Chemistry. She began working with the CCDM Foundation Projects team in 2022 when she started her PhD.

Meg enjoys applying spectroscopic techniques to help solve real-world problems. Her primary research interest is the role of metal ions in crop disease, specifically studying Yellow Spot disease in wheat. She uses Synchrotron light to develop methods of visualising metal ion distribution and speciation in infected leaves, which helps to understand how the plant and fungal pathogen are interacting.

PhD Project Title: Developing X-ray Tools to Image Metal Speciation in Plants
Supervisors: Mark J Hackett, Fatima Naim
