Research Interests:


I completed my undergraduate degrees in Communications and Plant Sciences at Cornell, where I also participated in research projects on aluminum tolerance and leaf width in rice as a member of the McCouch Lab.  I moved to Johnston, Iowa for a year to work for DuPont Pioneer, before beginning my graduate work at the University of Wisconsin - Madison with Natalia de Leon.  At UW-Madison, I received my Ph.D. in Plant Breeding & Plant Genetics and an MS in Biometry while developing phenotyping tools for, and studying the genetic architecture of, maize tassel morphology.  I joined the Buckler lab in June 2018 and I am interested in using quantitative genetics, machine learning, and simulations to integrate traditional and novel data types for the improvement of crop prediction models.
