Today, members of the Predictive Plant Phenomics Graduate Student Organization are hosting a discussion with CIMMYT senior scientist for the Global Wheat Program, Carolina Saint Pierre
Dr. Carolina Saint Pierre is Senior Scientist at the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT). She is the wheat phenotyping coordinator for
the CGIAR Research Program on international network of precision field based wheat phenotyping platforms. This global network is focused on the worldwide evaluation of target traits for wheat breeding, such as disease resistance, tolerance to abiotic stresses, and yield potential in key environments.
Carolina has also contributed to physiological studies in the CIMMYT Wheat Physiology group. She was trained as an agricultural engineer with an M.S. degree from Argentina and a Ph.D. from Oregon State University.
