PhD, Michigan State University

Job/Research Area 

Plant Physiology & Horticultural Science 


Major Responsibilities/Research Interests 

Research areas include physiology of horticultural crops, hormonal regulation of plant growth and development, and synthesis and catabolism of plant hormones. Our research group uses analytical and molecular techniques to investigate mechanisms of fruit growth and development. We are currently working with Pea (Pisum sativum) and Saskatoon (Amelancher alnifolia) to determine the role of seeds in fruit development. Other areas of interest include environmental physiology, dormancy, and the use of plant growth regulators to modify plant growth and development.
