Geoffrey Morris

Associate Professor
Kansas State University
USA

Geoff Morris is an Associate Professor of Crop Genetics in the Department of Agronomy at Kansas State University. He received his Ph.D. in Ecology & Evolution from the University of Chicago.

The mission of his program is to understand and improve crop adaptation. His group is focuses on genomics of climate adaptation in sorghum – a global food, feed, and fuel crop.

The Morris lab dissects climate-adaptive traits, develops new approaches to predict adaptation, and works with breeding programs in the US and developing countries (Senegal, Niger, Haiti, and others) to develop better-adapted varieties. He works to make public R&D more effective through training and dialogue on goal-directed hypothesis-driven science (www.GoHy.org).
