My primary program efforts concentrate on the biology, ecology, and management of fungal pathogens causing diseases of vegetable crops. Areas of interest include sustainable disease management strategies and integrated pest management (IPM); epidemiology of foliar pathogens; pathogenic fungi in the genera Sclerotinia, Botrytis, Colletotrichum, Puccinia, Alternaria, and Phytophthora; disease management in transitional and organic cropping systems; research-extension-instruction integration; international extension systems and crop protection.
