Cory D. Hirsch
Assistant Professor - Ph.D - 2011 | Plant Breeding and Plant Genetics | UW-Madison
I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Minnesota in the Department of Plant Pathology researching plant stress resistance biology. My research interests include using enabling technologies to understand genomic and expression variation within species and associating this variation with precision phenotyping to understand abiotic and biotic stress response in plants.
Postdoctoral Researcher - Ph.D. - 2016 | Integrative Genetics and Genomics | UC-Davis
I am a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Minnesota with a joint appointment in the labs of Cory Hirsch and Nathan Springer. I am currently studying the role of transposable elements on the regulation of gene expression in response to abiotic stress in maize.
Graduate Student - B.S. 2017 | Plant Science | University of Minnesota
I am a Master's student in the Department of Plant Pathology. I am developing a diagnostic assay to quantify soil inoculum of Aphanomyces cochlioides, a pathogen of sugar beets. Also, I will be researching genetic diversity between A. cochlioides isolates, and gene expression changes during infection events.
Graduate Student - M.S. 2017 | Applied Plant Sciences | University of Minnesota
I am a PhD student majoring in Applied Plant Sciences. I am currently researching high-throughput phenotyping methods to identify and characterize plant disease using hyperspectral imagery data.
Graduate Student - B.S. 2019 | Plant Science | University of Minnesota
I am a PhD student working to understand the importance of sexual recombination in oat crown rust (Puccinia coronata f. sp. avenae) using genome assembly and population genomics techniques.
Graduate Student - B.A. 2019 | Biology | St. Mary's University of Minnesota
I am a PhD student in Applied Plant Sciences in the labs of Cory Hirsch and Candice Hirsch. I am currently researching high-throughput phenotyping methods using unmanned aerial systems and hyperspectral imaging to identify variable responses to environments and stressors.
Undergraduate Researcher - B.S. 2018 | Computer Science (Statistics Minor) | University of Minnesota
I am an undergraduate student at the University of Minnesota, and will be graduating in Spring 2018. Currently I am working on analyzing hyperspectral imagery data of soybeans, while also developing automation scripts for dynamic data processing, analysis and visualization.
Undergraduate Researcher - B.S. 2021 | Computer Science | University of Minnesota
I am an undergraduate student majoring in computer science. I am currently researching resistance to pregermination in barley seeds and developing techniques to identify pregermination using hyperspectral imagery data.
