Specialty:Turfgrass Science & Ecology


I hold a 70% research/ 30% teaching appointment.  My research program addresses basic and applied research issues related to turfgrass management and ecology.  Research focuses on developing sustainable approaches to irrigation, nutrient management, and construction practices for golf course, sod production, and lawn systems.  My program collaborates with faculty across a variety of disciplines to address problems of interest to turf industry stakeholders.


I currently teach undergraduate courses in Advanced Turfgrass Ecology and Physiology (SCSC 428), Professional Development in Turfgrass Science (SCSC 489), and Sports Field Construction (SCSC 427), and oversee undergraduate research projects (SCSC 491) each semester.
