Research in my lab focuses on fruit growth and developmental physiology. I'm interested in understanding regulation of fruit size in small fruit and tree fruit crops. Fruit size is influenced by genetic, environmental, and cultural factors. My research aims to understand the contribution of these factors and their interaction in regulating fruit growth.

Improving the efficiency of mechanical harvesting can decrease labor costs and benefit fruit growers. Understanding abscission physiology is important to develop fruit specific abscission agents. My lab also studies signaling mechanisms involved in induction of abscission in leaves and fruit of fruit crops.
