We focus on understanding and improving the nutritional quality and abiotic stress tolerance (particularly to drought and high temperatures) of staple and specialty crops, to help ensure a food supply that is sufficient in quality and quantity for the long term.

Please feel free to read about the people on our immediate team (i.e., group members); 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.
