Annis is a postgraduate student in Professor Enrico Coen’s lab in the Cell and Developmental Biology department at the John Innes Centre. Her research focuses on the role of tissue polarity in the development of complex shapes in plant organs, particularly looking at leaf and floral structures. She uses a combination of computer modelling, using GFtbox software, and molecular techniques, such as RNA in situ hybridisation, to investigate the mechanism of tissue polarity coordination.
