My goal is to contribute to a safe and secure food supply by advancing sustainable agricultural production through scientific research, education and leadership. My academic interests range from Plant Pathology, Plant Breeding, and Crop Science, through to Epidemiology, Statistics, and Applied Economics and Management. I am interested in systems approaches to the management of plant diseases, integrating genetic, cultural, biological, and chemical control methods into practical strategies for effective, economical, safe, and sustainable disease management. I am particularly interested in environmental and crop management factors that influence plant disease progress. Current projects that relate to water include a project funded by the National Peanut Board to study the effect of irrigation on peanut diseases.
