The focus of my program is in woody plant physiology, particularly as it relates to carbohydrate and nitrogen assimilation. We've recently  been investigating the use of Vaccinium arboreum - a wild relative of the cultivated blueberry - as a rootstock to increase soil adaptability and potentially increase yield. See the link below to learn more about our rootstock grafting project: 

Blueberry Grafting

I also teach undergraduate and graduate courses in basic plant physiology, environmental physiology, and professional development.
