My research interests focus on identifying traits conferring tolerance to phosphorus deficiency in low fertility soils. I’m looking at Basal Root Growth plasticity in response to soil stress, and the identity of potential adaptive tradeoffs for topsoil foraging.

I am interested in conducting simulation studies , using SimRoot a structural functional model which simulates root architecture to evaluate root traits which aid better resource acquisition.

My current focus is to simulate two traits in maize roots, larger cortical cell size (CCS) and reduced cortical cell file number (CCFN), and their interaction with the presence of root cortical aerenchyma (RCA) improving growth under suboptimal N, P and K condition.
