My research program currently focuses on a) remote sensing with unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs or drones) to monitor disease epidemics and water inefficiencies across turfgrass systems, b) field radiometry and thermal imagery for improving biological and environmental stress detection of turfgrass systems and specialty crops, c) novel strategies to reduce pesticide inputs through targeted applications, and d) fungicide performance, efficacy, and ancillary benefits.
