Graduate Student

Research Interests:


I am a Plant Breeding and Genetics graduate student with an interest in maize intraspecific competition dynamics and phenotypic plasticity. Additionally, I am interested in how the process of maize domestication may have altered the competitive and plastic traits of modern breeding populations.


During my undergraduate work, I studied inbreeding depression in teosinte and root architecture across the genus Zea
