Research, Teaching, and Extension Work

My research interests are in the area of herbicide interactions in crops, weeds, and soil. Currently, my lab is focusing on the fate of cotton herbicides in surface and groundwater; persistence of new classes of peanut herbicides; physiology of herbicide-resistant crops; physiology of acetolactate-synthase inhibiting herbicides on Cyperus spp.; and the integration of herbicide-resistant crops in weed management systems in Georgia, particularly with corn, cotton, and soybean. I am the undergraduate coordinator for Crop and Soil Sciences as well as the instructor for Weed Science (CRSS 4340/6340), Physiology of Herbicide Action (CRSS 8330), Soil-Herbicide Interactions (CRSS 8340), and team teach Pesticide Utilization [(ENTO) (CRSS) 4250/6250], and Toxicology of Industrial and Agricultural Chemicals [PHAR (VEPH) 8920].
