Donald Danforth Plant Science Center
I am a plant scientist with a B.S. in Molecular Biology and a Ph.D. in Agronomy and Horticulture from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. I am currently conducting my postdoctoral research with Dr. Chris Topp at the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center, where I use X-ray CT to perform high-resolution 3D phenotyping of various plant systems, including maize, teosinte, and sorghum. While I am primarily studying below-ground plant processes such as root architecture and rhizome development, I am also interested in quantitative variation in complex above-ground organs such as compound inflorescences. In this highly interdisciplinary space, I collaborate with mathematicians, computer scientists, and imaging experts to extract and interpret novel biological information from increasingly sophisticated phenotyping platforms and data science pipelines.
