My research interests focus on broad translational impacts for international agriculture and development. This interest arose in part from my personal experience in a family of agricultural field of California and a U.S. Borlaug fellowship in Global Food Security where I worked on a USAID Horticulture Project in Bangladesh and Taiwan. I’m currently investigating novel mechanism of resistance using Xanthomonas spp. and rice as my model system. I am passionate about agriculture, plant diseases, and STEM education.

I’m a native from Santa Fe, Argentina and my educational background include an B.S. from Arizona State University and a Ph.D. from the University of Florida. My main area of interest is plant molecular biology and cell development focusing mostly in cereal crops. Currently, I’m working on an NSF funded project aimed to improve rice disease resistance response utilizing genome editing technology to analyze transcriptional activation of disease resistance QTLs.

I’m originally from California, although I went to undergrad in Portland, OR (Reed College, 2007) and to graduate school in Vancouver, BC (University of British Columbia, 2015). The overall goal of my research is to understand the proximate causes and ultimate drivers of trait variation. This understanding can accelerate genetic agricultural improvement and help us predict how species will respond to changing environments, and provides insight into how the diverse species and traits we observe today evolved. I also enjoy hiking, reading, and hanging out with my dog. Check out www.brookmoyers.com for more!

My research focuses on evolutionary ecology and invasion biology. I combine experimental, genomic, and ancient DNA approaches to investigate plant evolutionary genetics, particularly rapid adaptation to environmental change and the evolution of ecologically important traits. For more information, see http://www.kathryngturner.com/. I also blog about invasion biology and ethnobotany at http://www.alienplantation.com/.

Once a Badger, now a Ram; plants and viruses are my jam. I am originally from Guatemala and it was among its majestic volcanoes and their colorful surroundings that I discovered my passion for the application of science for the improvement of crop production around the world. I work on detection, epidemiology, and management of necrotic viruses of potato. Through my research, I seek to aid potato farmers in understanding viral diseases in their crop and improve the tools they use to manage them.

I am originally from China, and I came to U.S. for graduate school in Auburn University (Alabama) in Forestry, Entomology, and Statistics. I joined Dr. Amy Charkowski’s laboratory in Fall 2017 at Colorado State University, and my research in San Luis Valley Research Center focuses on improving detection and management of soil-borne potato pathogens, with an emphasis on Potato mop-top virus (PMTV), a virus causes necrosis of potato, and its vector Spongospora subterranea, the agent responsible for powdery scab on potato tubers in order to aid local farmers in understanding soil-borne potato pathogens and improving management strategies.

I am a plant bacteriologist interested in the evolution, biology and management of emerging plant disease threats. My current focus includes both applied and basic research concerning invasive and re-emerging pathogens of potato in Colorado and the United States.
