Dr. Christine Diepenbrock
Assistant Professor, Plant Reproductive Biology, UC Davis
Dr. Diepenbrock is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Plant Sciences at the University of California, Davis. Her research program aims to understand and improve the nutritional quality and abiotic stress resilience of staple and specialty crops, to ensure a food supply sufficient in quality and quantity for the long term. Her research group focuses on the statistical genetics, computational genomics, phenotyping, and development of integrative models for crop productivity, agronomics, and nutritional quality, in the presence of abiotic stressors such as drought and/or high temperature. With a focus on product delivery, the ultimate goal of her research program is to contribute to the improved nutritional statuses of human beings and livestock on a regional and global scale.
