Biography

My research involves the biology and management of fungal pathogens of field crops in Dr. Dean Malvick’s lab. My work has focused on root and stem pathogens of soybean, as well as the diagnosis of soybean and corn diseases in the field. Some of my most recent work on soybean has included sudden death syndrome, brown stem rot, Fusarium root rot, Rhizoctonia root rot, stem blight/canker caused by Diaporthe spp., and the interaction of multiple soybean pathogens.
