- Ph.D., Crop Physiology, Utah State University, 2013
Specialty: Cropping systems and physiology
Research: In my research program, I seek to be a leader in improving long-term economic and environmental sustainability of agricultural ecosystems and improve the productivity and resilience of crop plants. My colleagues and I design and study cropping systems to improve provision of ecosystem services in crop production. Crop physiology and phenology are explored to better understand crop responses to the environment and management practices, guiding improved variety development and crop management. Primary research areas include: enhancing agricultural ecosystem services through legumes; organic farming; high-throughput phenotyping; and improving crop yield, stress tolerance, and resource use.
