Biotech, Botany and Automation – Building better plants for a changing planet. By studying the molecular mechanisms of plant abiotic stress tolerance and the genetic diversity of underutilized crops, we can adapt out crops and agricultural systems to keep pace with a changing climate and increasing demands of a growing human population. Currently working on Quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa), a nutritious, facultative salt-tolerant crop species from South America, to adapt it to conditions in the Middle East and globally.
