Education/Professional Experience

I obtained my Ph.D. from the University of Texas at Austin studying molecular mechanisms for hybrid vigor and polyploidy in Arabidopsis. I was interested in gaining more experience working with crops, so I came to the University of Minnesota in summer 2014 to begin a postdoc working with Dr. Shahryar Kianian at the USDA-ARS Cereal Disease Lab (CDL) and Dr. Changbin Chen in the Department of Horticulture. In this position, I worked on wheat organellar genetics and genomics and searching for new sources of salt tolerance in wheat.
