Currently I teach Plant Propagation, Plant Propagation Techniques Laboratory, and a graduate course, Plant Cell and Tissue Culture.

Research interest:
Plant propagation research projects focus on developing in vitro systems for high-value horticultural crops, such as medicinal, ornamental and other elite germplasm. Systems integration work with liquid medium includes both mechanical (vessel, matrix and facility design) and nutrient medium optimization. Multi-factor models balance nutrient and process factors to maximize growth responses during in vitro propagation and greenhouse acclimatization or nursery growth.

Professional society activity:
American Council for Medicinally Active Plants, Vice President
In Vitro Cellular and Developmental Biology-Plants, Associate Editor
