Research Interests:

My research program focuses on the improvement of oilseeds and industrial crops, biofuels and natural rubber, using conventional and molecular breeding methodologies, utilizing high-throughput phenotyping and genotyping technologies, and developing genomic technologies to identify genes/alleles controlling abiotic stress resistance and productivity traits in an effort to improve yield under stress conditions, and achieve sustainability.
