About

I am originally from Raleigh, NC and have a background in Forestry and Forest Genetics. After obtaining my Masters at NCSU, I moved to Jacksonville, FL where I worked for 3 years as a tree breeder and geneticist for a large containerboard company. Now I am living Brookings, SD and pursuing PhD at SDSU in the Plant Science Department. My research is focused on application of family-based QTL mapping approaches in plant breeding populations.
