Baccalaureate - University of Texas at Arlington, Biology Degree with Honors
I am a first year PhD student at the University of California at Davis studying Horticulture and Agronomy. I am a member of Dr. Dubcovsky's wheat lab and am currently researching spikelets per spike within wheat in order to increase yield. I am funded by the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program and personally interested in genetics, plant breeding, and crop improvement. My goal is to enter the plant breeding industry as a researcher.
