My research focuses on the uptake, translocation, and signaling of micronutrients and biofortification of crop species. I also work on the development of stress-tolerant crops via molecular breeding and genetic engineering technologies. My research group applies novel genetic and molecular techniques to identify transcription factors, transporters, and gene networks related to stress tolerance in soybean, potato, wheat, quinoa, and Arabidopsis with national and international partners.
