Graduate Student
Davison Life Sciences B310
Research Interests:

I am interested in the molecular processes underlying plant response to abiotic stresses. Carbohydrate production, storage, and transport across plant organs is an integral process in winter tolerance. My dissertation research investigates winter-biased genes involved in carbohydrate utilization in hybrid poplar by generating CRISPR-Cas9 knockouts and exploring their seasonal phenotypes.
