Curriculum Vitae (pdf)

My research emphasis is in plant breeding and plant genetics, with particular interest in the application of molecular breeding to cultivar enhancement.  Current interests involve the application of cultivar enhancement and plant introduction strategies to improve productivity and nutritional value of crops grown in developing countries.
