Research Interests

One of my research areas includes plant genetic engineering, crop improvement, biological control organisms, Agrobacterium tumefaciens and Agrobacterium rhizogenes as gene transfer agents, and vectors for introducing new genes into plants. Another area focuses on chromatin structure and scaffold attachment regions and their effect on transgene expression and stability.
