Quantitative genetics specialist

Breeding scheme optimization

My research is focused on the utilization of quantitative genetics, genomics and biostatistics in plant breeding. I am fascinated by the opportunities arising from novel breeding tools and modern computational technologies, which allow the combination of classical phenotype-based selection and molecular data for the optimization of breeding programs. Having studied agricultural sciences and crop production, one of my key objectives is to make scientific knowledge and novel methods useful in practice.
