I’ve managed energy-conserving, production, research and institutional greenhouses throughout my career. I’m especially interested in biological control of pests found in greenhouse production crops such as annuals, tomatoes and conservatory environments.

Courses: I teach Greenhouse Operation and Management PSS 127 on alternate years during the spring semester.
