Innovator Bio

My research works on developing and supporting sustainable weed management that helps contribute to sustainable cropping systems. Specifically, I am interested in research to better identify the molecular and genetic basis of complex herbicide resistance mechanisms; utilizing next-generation sequencing to study complex traits in weeds; and developing molecular markers for rapid resistance diagnostics.
