Dr. Mingying Xiang is a postdoctoral scholar from the University of California, Riverside, and her research focuses on water conservation and salinity management in turfgrass and other landscape systems. She received a Ph.D. in Horticulture from Kansas State University. In Kansas, her research focused on reducing turfgrass management inputs. She also led a collaborative study with researchers from nine other universities to evaluate unique zoysiagrass genotypes for disease resistance. Before joining Kansas State University, she worked on salinity tolerance of turfgrass during her M.S. in Horticulture at Oklahoma State University.
