Professor — Plant Physiology

Current research is focused on: (1) environmental physiology of ornamental, medicinal, and bioenergy crops, (2) somatic cell genetics and its application for new cultivar development, (3) sustainable management of invasive species, and (4) phytoremediation for improving environmental quality.

Extension program has two main focus areas: (1) integrated water and nutrient management for foliage plant production and (2) plant quality improvement during propagation, production, and interiorscape. Scientifically based information is incorporated into various extension activities such as workshops, field days, and extension publications through coordinated effort with other state extension faculty members and county extension agents.
