I'm anticipating graduating Summer 2025
My research is focused on understanding the effects of grafting alter nutritional status and vegetative and reproductive growth in tomato and watermelon. Specifically, I am interested in the individual and combined effects of scion and rootstock genotype on grafted tomato plant vigor. I am also working to determine the effects of rootstocks on supply of nutrients to grafted watermelons.
I chose graduate school at OSU HCS because of the great research facilities located right on main campus and across the state.
