About

My professional interest is to help improve agricultural production and use research/breeding activities for the benefit of farmers and the agriculture industry. I am committed to develop superior soybean cultivars and germplasm for farmers and other stakeholders. I have participated in the development of 42 commercial cultivars (annually grown in >10 million acres) and 13 germplasm lines, published >125 peer-reviewed publications (and additionally >100 conference/meeting abstracts or posters), served as a PI/co-PI on <55 funded projects from multiple sources, and given >65 invited talks nationally and internationally.

I have co-authored textbook “Plant Breeding and Cultivar Development” (Academic Press, USA; 2021).

We are a breeding, discovery and tool-development driven group, with an interest in using transcending approaches and research activities to prepare and promote the next generation of exceptionally capable and creative people who will work in inter- and trans-disciplinary teams to conduct critical research and establish productive breeding and research programs.

Our Mission: Educating the next generation of breeders in agriculture, engineering, and data science to develop tools and technologies that advance science and empower farmers to increase profitability and sustainability.

Our Research Goals: To improve agricultural production and to positively impact farmers and the agriculture industry through the development of new products (cultivars, germplasm, methods, tools), gene discovery, and research insights on pertinent topics.

Plant-breeding experience in soybean, durum wheat, wheat, maize, oats, and barley.

Outside of work, prefers to spend time with family and friends, traveling, and watching sports.

Favorite sports and teams: NFL; CFL (Saskatchewan Roughriders), MLB (Toronto Blue Jays), NHL (Toronto Maple Leafs), NBA (Toronto Raptors).
