Research Interests: 

Current research at our Bioenergy Lab focuses on developing sustainable production systems on marginal land for high cellulosic biomass and sugar yielding feedstocks. Increasing fossil fuel cost, reduced supply, dependence on foreign oil, increasing greenhouse gas emissions, depleting soil profiles necessitates the need of such a sustainable production system. We are studying crops like Napiergrass (Pennisetum purpureum), Energycane (Saccharum officinarum L.), Sorghum (Sorghum bicolor L. Moench), Clover (Trifolium incarnatum L.), vetch (Vicia villosa Roth) and annual rye (Secale cereale L.). Our emphasis is on developing and analyzing low-input production methods for napiergrass and energycane, measuring carbon and N sequestration in the soil and plant, measuring emission of N2O from different cropping systems, and developing comprehensive life cycle assessment models to quantify the economic and environmental benefits of bioenergy crop production systems.
