Profile

I'm trying to explore the past crop evolution from the current genetic diversity and relationships of cultivated plants and humans, and if possible I'd like to think about the future as well, that's why I continue field research on plant genetic resources. Now I am interested in Southeast Asia, particularly Myanmar, and neighboring Northeast India. I am interested in minor crops like foxtail millet, crop wild relatives (CWRs) and ethnobotany around them.
