Assistant Professor and Extension Weed Specialist:

Foster Virginia agriculture by developing innovative and sustainable weed management solutions for row crop and vegetable growers.  At the forefront of my research are management of herbicide-resistant common ragweed, horseweed, Palmer amaranth, and Italian ryegrass, as well as preemptive measures for avoiding future herbicide resistance.  Additionally, it is my mission to promote proper stewardship of new technology as it reaches the field.
