Research Interests:

 

I’m an agronomist who is passionate about the biometrics underlying the interactions of plants with their growing environment. My research interests are phenomics, enviromics (large-scale envirotyping), and quantitative genetics applied to predictive breeding enabled by statistical or machine learning approaches. I recently joined the Buckler Lab to support the implementation of enviromic-aided efforts for a better understanding of plant adaptations across diverse scenarios and integrate enviromics with different omics, data types, and predictive tools.


Education:


•  Ph.D. in Quantitative Genetics and Plant Breeding, University of São Paulo – “Luiz de Queiroz” Agriculture College (Esalq-USP, Brazil)

•  M.S. in Plant Breeding, Federal University of Goiás (UF Goiás, Brazil) and Brazilian Corporation for Agricultural Research (Embrapa)
