Expertise Summary

2020-nowadays: Research Fellow at The University of Nottingham ¦ Detection and characterization of alien introgression in durum wheat lines using molecular markers (KASP) cytogenetics (GISH) and phenotypic data. This project is through the Crop Trust foundation and is in collaboration with CIMMYT (Mexico), ICARDA (Morocco) and IIWBR (India).

2015-2019: Crop Science PhD Student at The University of Nottingham ¦ Phenotypic and genotypic data were analyzed to get a better understanding of how to boost spike fertility through DM partitioning enhanced in wheat to boost yield potential using the resources available.

2013-2015: Research Assistant at CIMMYT ¦ Generations of SNPs using DArTseq technology.

2008-2011: BE in Biotechnology ¦ Universidad Autonoma de Nuevo Leon.
