I am conducting genomic selection for provitamin A content in diverse maize panels, and working to characterize the effects of combined drought and heat stress on maize physiology and micronutrient content. I have joined the effort to develop high-throughput, field-based phenotyping approaches for both whole-plant physiology and grain quality traits, and to integrate these data into quantitative genetics analytical platforms. My ultimate interest is in breeding nutritious, climate-resilient crops for rainfed production areas.
