I have had an interest in plant physiology and am excited to explore the relationship between

grapes and insect pest phylloxera in terms of hormone regulations, etc. My Master’s thesis

focused on mapping coincident QTL for multiple quantitative traits in barley, and I am interested

physiology, through which grapes interact with phylloxera. Transitioning into the Ph.d program, I

am excited for opportunities for teaching and learning about outreach, the practical outcome of
