Research and Extension Activities

Provide leadership in turfgrass water and environmental issues with 70% research and 30% extension duties.  Research efforts focus on urban turfgrass environments including urban water quality, use, and conservation, turfgrass plant physiology, and sustainable turfgrass management.  Extension efforts focus on dissemination of environmental turfgrass science and management information to the fine turf industry, extension educators, master gardeners, governmental decision makers, and the public.  Secure extramural funding to support and sustain research and extension activities. Publish research results in refereed journals, scientific conference proceedings, and other appropriate venues.  Publish extension information in fact sheets, bulletins, guides, and/or popular press and trade articles.  Recruit, advise, and direct MS and PhD students to prepare them for entrance into industry or academic positions.  Participate in and contribute to local, state, regional, national, and/or international professional societies and organizations. Participate in and contribute to departmental, college, and university level service committees and activities.
