Assistant Professor

Curriculum Vitae

I am an Assistant Professor in the Plant and Wildlife Sciences department at Brigham Young University (BYU). I received my B.S. and M.S. degrees from BYU and my Ph.D. from the University of Arizona. Prior to coming to BYU in 2017, I was a post-doctoral fellow at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST). I have experience in molecular biology, genetics, and genomics.
 Teaching Interests
Genomics, genetics
 Research Interests
My research interests focus on the development of genomic tools that can aid in the agronomic improvement of understudied crops such as quinoa. Of particular interest is improving the ability of these crops to grow in marginal environments, such as areas containing high levels of soil salinity.
