Research Interests:
  • Pollen Banking
  • Cryobiology
  • Ex situ conservation

My work primarily focuses on the collection, study and storage of pollen from endangered species. The storage of pollen allows us to make selected crosses to improve the genetics of plants in collections and help with in situ work down the line.
