Postdoctoral Research Associate

Basic Information

Personal Website:

My research in the Devos laboratory focuses on a highly salt-tolerant turgrass, seashore paspalum, to better understand mechanisms of salt tolerance in plants. I also study the genetic mechanisms underlying dwarfing in the model species Arabidopsis thaliana in addition to pearl millet, a vital food crop.

Area of Research:
