About

My academic interests are in plant disease epidemiology and aerobiology. The focus of my research and extension program is to improve the management of crop diseases affecting both vegetable and agronomic crop production systems in Florida. It is my goal to use various statistical, weather and educational tools to develop efficient plant disease management programs that will maximize disease control and reduced costly inputs (i.e. chemicals, water, and time).


Extension

My extension educational programs are aimed at increasing the plant pathology expertise of agricultural service personnel, educators, crop advisors and producers. I am working closely with horticulturalists, agronomists and other plant scientists to evaluate cultural, biological and chemical disease control strategies as a component of integrated pest management primarily for potatoes, watermelons and peanuts.
