Milad Eskandari 

Dr. Milad Eskandari is an Associate Professor in the Department of Plant Agriculture at the University of Guelph's Ridgetown Campus. His primary research and breeding program is focused on developing food-grade soybean cultivars and germplasm with improved agronomic and seed quality traits, as well as resistance to biotic and abiotic stresses that are relevant to Canadian soybean growers and end-users. Dr. Eskandari and his team are also actively involved in advancing knowledge in the areas of high-throughput phenotyping and genotyping in soybeans, with the aim of developing more efficient breeding methods and genomic tools that can help facilitate the development of new cultivars.
