Research Specialty and Interests:

Wheat grain quality genetics

Novel wheat types (waxy wheats, soft durums)

Wild and ancient wheats

*The mission of the WWQL, includes developing new methods of evaluating quality characteristics of doughs and flours, evaluating milling and baking qualities of thousands of wheat samples each year from breeding programs throughout the Western region, and research the biochemical and genetic basis of wheat quality. 

Objectives: increase and improve wheat utilization, increase the nutrient density and healthfulness of wheat, protect global genetic resources.
