 Research Interests

I am interested in understanding genotype, environment, and management interactions to predict crop growth and development under potential, water-limited, and salt stress conditions. I apply engineering principles and empirical relationships to simulate physiological and biochemical processes of crop growth and pollutant transport in agroecosystems. I maintain research and consulting interest to develop policies using crop and water quality models.
