My research focuses on the development of germplasm for resistance to selected biotic and abiotic stresses.  This includes identification of resistance sources, incorporation into segregating populations, and selection/evaluation of populations for multiple stress resistance in diverse Texas environments.  International research collaboration for biotic stress resistance and food quality aids in development of germplasm potentially useful in developing countries.
