I am a researcher at Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s Eastern Cereal and Oilseed Research Centre in Ottawa. My research focuses on the Brassicaceae (Mustard Family) in areas including systematics, Canadian biodiversity, herbicide resistance, hybridization, geneflow and risk assessment. Currently, projects in my laboratory focus on Camelina sativa and Brassica carinata.
