Research Interests

My research efforts address the needs of under-served populations in agricultural sciences and education such as disadvantaged farmers, individuals with disabilities, women farmers (gender issues). Addressing the needs of agricultural teacher educators related to their needs for instructing students with special needs i.e. learning disabilities, gifted and talented is also studied. Other research interest include focusing on Diversity initiatives.
