My research experience encompasses all stages of engineering and phenotyping of plants, such as cloning (molecular biology), tissue culture, bacteria and plant transformations, gene expression analysis, plant growth and biomass characterization, and use of analytical equipment and microscopy techniques. The focus of my research is on engineering bioenergy crops to enhance the production of bio products and to reduce biomass recalcitrance during processing. During the past year, I was focused on teaching undergrad classes with the main goal of training students on molecular biology and biochemical analysis techniques. My mission in teaching is to engage students with the topics by relating them to current events and their application to solving modern problems of society.
