100% Rice Extension Pathology. Extension focus largely on disease diagnosis and management Research focus largely on fungal and bacterial Pathology. Disseminate educational information related to rice diseases through available means including extension blogs, rice newsletter , extension website   information   Involved also in teaching portions of plant pathology courses to graduate and under graduate students. Serving on the Board for AACES.

Research interests include management of rice diseases caused by biotic (fungi and bacteria) and abiotic factors such as hydrogen sulfide toxicity, autumn decline and straighthead.
