I am interested in simulating root traits that would benefit plant nutrient and water acquisition via SimRoot, a structural functional model which simulates root architecture and growth.
- Roots Lab
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.
