Research:

I am a Plant Physiologist by training.  My research interests are to understand the mechanistic basis of plant-environment interactions and to develop the methods to quantify/ elucidate the responses.  I employ classical and novel physiological/ molecular approaches to address the fundamental questions in plant development and stress responses.

My current responsibilities in the wheat breeding program at Amarillo include:

  • Development of reliable high-throughput phenotyping system for screening wheat and winter small grain germplasm for forage production and multiple stress conditions
  • Assisting plant breeding activities and trait development process in winter wheat and cool-season perennial grass cropping systems for Texas
