My expertise is in the area of plant breeding, genetics study and genomics analysis for oilseed crops especially rapeseed/canola and flax. I am conducting research on canola and flax germplasm development for high oil, high seed yield, disease resistant, stress tolerant traits (such as cold tolerant, heat tolerant, salinity tolerant) using interspecific and intraspecific crosses. Especial focus on traits related to the high oil/acre for both edible and bio-diesel production. I have been utilizing double haploid and molecular marker technologies in the breeding program. My field experimental trials are located at 8 locations in North Dakota for developing, evaluating and releasing superior canola and flax cultivars. I have multiple greenhouse rooms and a wide range temperature (-10˚C to +35˚C) controlled plant growth chamber for breeding research round the year. I have started using drone and robot for phenotyping desired agronomic traits. An off-season (winter) nursery facility is available in Chile to expedite the breeding cycle. We have established joint research programs with different breeding companies to develop canola hybrids.
