I am a Research Plant Physiologist with the Sunflower and Plant Biology Research Unit, Red River Valley Agricultural Research Center, Fargo, ND. The mission of the unit is to develop knowledge and technology that benefit the sunflower industry and consumers and discover novel solutions for weed management. The weed management research program falls under NP304 (Investigation of the Biology of Pests-Weeds). As a member of the research team, I am responsible for fundamental research on reproduction and growth of the noxious perennial weed leafy spurge (Euphorbia esula) and identifying novel weed management strategies. Additionally, I am tasked with leading the team in utilizing next generation sequencing technologies and bioinformatics for population genetics, gene expression, and promoter analyses in perennial weeds and canola. More recently, we have initiated a project to investigate plant-plant interactions and signaling with the hopes of creating more weed-tolerant crops for enhances use of cover-cropping and inter-cropping technologies.
