  • Research Interests:

      I am interested in using DNA marker information to reconstruct
      the pedigree of natural and newly domesticated populations. I am
      interested as well in developing statistical models applicable to
      Quantitative Trait Loci (QTL) mapping in outbred tree pedigrees,
      with the development of Marker Assisted Selection strategies as
      a long-term goal.
