Research Interests:
My research program focuses on the improvement of industrial, biofuel and natural rubber crops, with emphasis on using conventional and molecular breeding methodologies. I also utilize remote sensing and high-throughput phenotyping and genotyping technologies, and develop genomics-based technologies to identify genes controlling abiotic stress resistance and yield traits. The end goal is to improve crop tolerance to abiotic stress and stabilize yields under stress conditions, thereby improving suitability and performance of these crops.
