We conduct grain legume breeding/genetics and are focused on improving nutritional quality alongside productivity, and drought and high-temperature tolerance, in staple and specialty crops. Our overall goal is to help ensure a climate-resilient, nutritionally dense food supply.

Please feel free to read about the backgrounds and interests of members of our lab; peruse our research and publications; and/or contact us. We are interested in collaborations and other forms of partnership and outreach opportunities, and are still building up our immediate and extended teams. Please note that we are not accepting additional new graduate students into the lab at this time.
