Phd student at KVH

06 October 2016
KVH welcomed Stuart Woodcock to the team in August. Stuart is a PhD student from the John Innes Centre in Norwich, UK. He is working with KVH and Zespri on a three month secondment. His work investigates how bacteria are able to cause disease in humans and plants and he has previously worked with bacteria similar to Psa. Stuart is using his time in New Zealand to review the recent research on Psa and gain insight into how the kiwifruit industry works. By the end of his secondment, he hopes to have identified any gaps in past research and will provide recommendations on future direction.
