Research: My responsibilities as leader of the Small Grains Breeding and Genetics Program include management of oat cultivar development for the entire state of Texas and wheat cultivars for South, Central, and Northeast Texas. Other responsibilities include procurement of grant funding, graduate student training, and conducting research relevant to wheat and oats genetic improvement. I released and co-released 13 wheat and one oat cultivars.
Teaching: I teach a graduate level course in Experimental Designs in Agriculture (SCSC 660) and an undergraduate course in Crop Stress Management (SCSC 402).
