I'm anticipating graduating in 2026 or 2027
It was always my dream to find connections among interdisciplinary areas of omics such as morphology, physiological, genetic and molecular biology. Luckily, I have found my desired research specialty with Dr. Jonathan Fresnedo Ramirez - I can foster my skills and experience in crop breeding and molecular biology. My primary focus is working to dissect events in perennial outstanding crops such as hazelnut and almonds. Interestingly, I am working on identifying the underlying reasons for non-infectious bud failure in almond cultivars through epigenetic profiling and phenotyping platforms such as metabolomics and so on for my PhD research.
I was interested in graduate studies at OSU HCS because of the strong faculty members, and well-knitted academic network with potential industries.
