What is your research about and what is the impact? How does it relate to the horticulture industry, what is the goal?
My research will mainly be focused on learning about different traits (uniformity, fiber, and insect resistance ) on industrial hemp.
What was the path you took to work in plant sciences? And then what advice would you give to your younger self to get into the field/career you are in today?
When I was in high school I had the opportunity to attend a USDA summer camp where I learned about plant breeding, the green revolution and genetics, after this I became very interested in learning more about this area of science.
