Research Summary: My research involves a multidisciplinary approach involving omics, biochemistry, and pre-clinical study to gain an understanding of the relationships between different crop cultivars and their bioactive compounds on cardiometabolic diseases, such as hypertension and obesity. My passion is to improve crop nutritional quality as a translational delivery vehicle for health. My crop model is potato as it is one of the best candidates to provide a sustainable healthy nutritious diet for all.
