Assistant Professor, School of Integrative Plant Science Plant Breeding and Genetics Section
My background is in plant and animal breeding with a focus on advanced modeling and computational science for improving the efficiency of breeding programs and increasing understanding of complex traits.
Increasing understanding of genotype by environmental interactions
My lab conducts research to develop and implement advanced modeling and informatics capabilities to improve decision making and understanding of complex traits. Currently the lab is focused on bioenergy, genomic selection, phenomics, and increasing understanding of genotype by environmental interactions. My lab works with multiple crops and research is conducted in collaboration with breeding programs in the United States, Africa, and Asia.
