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.
