Tsogtbayar Baasandorj, native of Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, presented a seminar entitled Dark, Hard and Vitreous (DHV) HRS Wheat Kernel Content Effect on Milling and Baking Quality on May 2, 2014 in Loftsgard Hall at North Dakota State University.

Baasandorj examined milling and baking quality of wheat samples exhibiting differing levels of DHV kernel content in subclasses of HRS wheat.

Baasandorj had the opportunity to intern with Mennel Milling Company in Fostoria, Ohio, where he worked in Research and Development. Of his time there, he says, “It was a wonderful experience and allowed me to gain industrial research experience and also to apply my academic research knowledge.” Baasandorj also was a Charles and Linda Moses Presidential Graduate Fellowship recipient.

The next step for Baasandorj is continuing graduate studies here at NDSU, where he hopes to obtain his Ph.D. in Cereal Science under the supervision of Dr. Senay Simsek. He says, “I chose NDSU because I wanted to pursue my graduate studies in Plant Sciences. I highly recommend NDSU Plant Sciences to prospective students who are interested in agriculture and also interested in conducting research in Plant Sciences, as NDSU is one of the nation’s top 108 public and private universities.”

Baasandorj’s graduate committee included Dr. Frank Manthey, Dr. Jae Ohm, Dr. Frayne Olson, and adviser Dr. Senay Simsek.
