Biography

Junrey completed his Bachelor of Science degree in Agriculture majoring in Plant Pathology and Master of Science in Plant Breeding with cognates in Molecular Biology and Biotechnology at Central Mindanao University and the University of the Philippines Los Banos, respectively. He was employed at the International Rice Research Institute as a researcher of the Salinity and Problem Soils Tolerance Breeding Team for 5 years before accepting a permanent position at the Philippines' Department of Agriculture as a Senior Science Research Specialist. He was accepted to pursue a Ph.D. at the University of Western Australia and joined the Batley Lab in 2019.

Research Interests

Plant-pathogen interaction; abiotic and biotic stress resistance; marker-assisted plant breeding; penomics of plant disease resistance

Current Projects

Mining for novel resistance against Blackleg (Leptosphaeria maculans) in diverse Brassica germplasm
