Position Title
Graduate Student

  • Plant Biology Graduate Group

My primary research interests revolve around biotechnology and bioinformatics for crop improvement. I also worked in the Diepenbrock lab as an undergraduate student while double-majoring in International Agricultural Development and Spanish with a Plant Biology minor; in that time, I worked on using functional genetic approaches for improved abiotic stress tolerance and nutritional quality though gene over-expression in maize and sorghum.
