Research Interests:


I am  interested in studying structural variation in maize using genome graphs and applying this work to help breeders quickly, cheaply, and efficiently genotype their progeny. I began my work with genome graphs and graph genotyping on A. thaliana during my  Fulbright project in the Weigel Lab in Germany. Using the experience gained from this project, I am now helping the Buckler Lab Practical Haplotype Graph team to accomplish similar goals in maize.
