I am a Postdoctoral Researcher in plant quantitative genetics. Most of my work is computational with a focus on statistics and simulations. My projects centre on developing novel methodologies for breeding programme improvement.

I was previously a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Technical University of Munich. I received my PhD in Genetics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and my BSc in Biotechnology and Mathematics from Indiana University Bloomington.

In my free time I enjoy exploring foods with familiar and unfamiliar tastes.
