Research 

The main objective of my research is to integrate ecological principles into weed management decisions in agronomic crops. Specifically, my research is focused on the following areas:

Weed management in forage crops

Shade avoidance in sugarbeet

Herbicide synergism

Harvest weed seed control and weed seedbank management
