Ph.D.: Michigan State (1974)
Year Appointed: 1974
Areas of Interest
Biology, ecology and management of invasive weeds, diversification of cropping systems, renewable energy systems, and selection and breeding of winter annual and perennial crops.
My job responsibilities are primarily 20% teaching and 80% research along with the management of CINRAM. I conduct research on the biology and ecology of invasive weeds, diversification of cropping systems, weed management in annual and perennial cropping systems, design and management of renewable energy systems, and selection and breeding of winter annual and perennial crops.
