Educational Background:

BS in Crop Science, Utah State University, 2007.

MS in Plant Science, Utah State University, 2009.

PhD in Crop Physiology, Utah State University, 2013.

Skills and Expertise:

Crop physiology, crop ecology, and agronomy

Focus of the Plant Physiology Program:

In my research program, I seek to be a leader in improving the long-term economic and environmental sustainability of agricultural ecosystems and improving the productivity, quality, and resilience of crop plants. Disciplinary approaches of crop physiology, crop ecology, and agronomy are used to better understand how crops respond to the environment and interact in cropping systems, guiding improved variety development and management practices.

Current Research Projects:

Research is funded under the USDA-ARS NP 216

  • Agricultural System Competitiveness and Sustainability
