I am the state vegetable pathologist for South Carolina with a faculty appointment of 80% research and 20% Extension. The focus of my program is sustainable disease management for vegetable crops. Five M.Sc. and three Ph.D. students have graduated under my direction; currently I advise one M.S./Ph.D. student in the Plant and Environmental Sciences graduate program. I was the lead editor of the Compendium of Cucurbit Diseases and Pests, 2nd edition, APS Press, published 2017. In 2018 I was awarded the Godley-Snell Award for Excellence in Agricultural Research from Clemson University.
