Specialty:Cotton Fiber Quality

Research: My research is focused on developing research tools and protocols needed for the quantification and utilization of distributional characteristics of cotton fiber quality. These advancements will provide researchers with a better understanding of cotton fiber as an industrial raw material. My research also facilitates the development of germplasm that exhibits improved spinning performance along with spun yarn quality.

Teaching: The amount of data gathered in modern agricultural research projects can be overwhelming. My teaching is designed to provide students with the tools needed for a structured approach to data driven research. This allows the student to develop the skills needed for work with multidisciplinary teams in modern agricultural research.
