Research interests and responsibilities:
I have an 80/20 split between research and extension. My interests are primarily with the development of specialty type potatoes and the improvement of chipping lines that will have high specific gravity, and resistance to Internal Heat Necrosis. Also we have an ongoing study to identify germplasm that is Colorado Potato Beetle resistant for use in cultivar development. My responsibilities with the program are the implementation of trials in both the field and greenhouse, the coordinaton, procurement, and management of all necessary help and temporary workers, and collection and management of all data from trials we conduct. Part of the data managment is the development and maintenance of an online database, which stretches, back to 1995. My extension responsibilities involve the dissemination of the data collected in the form of an annual report as well as the presentation of the data to growers and industry stake-holders at various meetings.
