Marjorie Hanneman

Ph.D. student, Plant Breeding and Genetics

Marjorie Hanneman is a Ph.D. student in Michael Gore‘s lab at Cornell University. Her research within ILCI focuses on sorghum grain quality for semolina production. This project includes grain phenotyping and genomic prediction to develop sorghum lines for dry milling in Haiti. In collaboration with CACCIA, this project incorporates cross-cutting themes and focuses on gender equality within the sorghum supply chain. Marjorie’s other research interests include genetic mapping of B vitamins in maize and biofortification, and how host plant genetics influence the microbial community in the soil rhizosphere. She holds a B.S. in Agronomy and Genetics from Iowa State University.
