Biographical Sketch

My research is mainly on shellfish genomics and breeding. I did a post-doctoral research at Haskin Shellfish Research Laboratory from 2013 to 2017, where I worked on identification of candidate genes associated with disease resistance in eastern oysters and genetic improvement of tetraploid and triploid oysters. I took the position of oyster genomic researcher at Patuxent Environmental and Aquatic Research Laboratory, Morgan State University, in September, 2017. Here I am leading a research on developing disease-resistant, fast growing, stress tolerant and special shell colored oyster stock lines through genomic selection and marker-assisted selection. I am also interested in landscape genomics and population genetics of marine organisms.
