The majority of his research projects deal with sustainable floriculture production, precision horticulture, nutrition and water management, seed biology, conservation techniques (cryobiology and synthetic seed), tissue/cell culture, pharmaceutical compounds, and molecular marker applications for somaclonal variation detection in some endangered/rare species, flowers,fruit trees, medicinal plants and ornamentals.
His current research focuses on:
- In-vitro propagation (tissue/cell culture) and gene-banking (cyopreservation) of the imperiled/rare Floridian native plants (mostly orchids)
- Optical non-destructive handheld sensor technology for sustainable fertilizer management in horticultural crops
- Anti-quorum sensing activity of medicinal plants
- Seed technology and biotechnology
