Additional Information


My Lab is interested in studying the interactive effects of environment, management, and crop genetics on the productivity and sustainability of grain cropping systems. We address this complex question with a multi-disciplinary approach that integrates agronomic and hypothesis-driven eco-physiology research with the use of crop simulation models. Main research questions in our lab try to fill knowledge gaps in soil-plant-atmosphere interactions and plant processes that ultimately determine yield and grain composition.
