Biography: 

Yujin Park is an assistant professor in the science and mathematics faculty group in the College of Integrative Sciences and Arts. Her research focuses on horticultural crop physiology and controlled environment agriculture. She aims to better understand how environmental controls, including light, temperature, and nutrients, influence plant growth and development of floriculture and vegetable crops in controlled environment agriculture production.
