Matthew Brooke was born and raised in North Dakota. He started his PhD in the Department of Crop Sciences at Washington State University in Spring 2020. The focus of his research is utilizing marker assisted selection to develop breeding lines and advanced elite material with malt quality and stem rust resistance as well as the incorporation of non-GN into distilling lines including Palmer. These projects will incorporate genotyping and malt quality analysis. This will expedite the development of both spring and winter WSU malting barley varieties.
