Master of Science  – Crop Science

Thesis / Dissertation:  Investigating a Novel Method to Evaluate Weed-Crop Interactions under a Moisture Gradient

Advisor: Dr. Wesley Everman

Graduate Committee:
Dr. Ramon Leon
Dr. Anna Locke

Research Summary:
Evaluated competition between annual row crops and weeds under a soil moisture gradient by using a novel method adapted from a moisture stress protocol used in perennial cropping systems.

I plan to use my degree to:
Work in research in the private sector. I wish to continue working in weed science and/or crop physiology. In the future I wish to pursue a PhD.

What I enjoyed most about my experience in Crop and Soil Sciences at NC State was:
The great support from all the faculty and department employees is something that I’ll carry in my heart forever.

While earning my degree, my greatest supporters were:
My family and friends,  who supported me and cheered me on during my years in graduate school.

Now that I have graduated, I’m most looking forward to:
Being able to work in something that I am passionate about with the knowledge in science and research I have obtained in the past few years.
