I am a Senior Lecturer in Crop Science and Weed Agronomy in the Department of Food Production, Faculty of Food and Agriculture. I obtained my BSc., MSc. and PhD Degrees from the UWI, St. Augustine and my MAppl. Sci. in Agronomy from Lincoln University, New Zealand. My research and teaching revolves around my area of experience in sustainable vegetable production, integrated weed management and innovative non-traditional farming technologies, including protected agriculture and controlled environmental agriculture. I also have interest in Participatory action research techniques with small farmers. I have worked with Fairtrade banana small farmers in St. Vincent and the Grenadines using the Participatory Research methods as part of my PhD Studies. I have authored and co-authored papers and chapters on these topics, which have been published in both regional and internation peer-reviewed journals and I have also co-edited books on Sustainable Food Production Practices in the Caribbean Agriultural Development and Impacts of climate change on food production in Small Island Developing States (SIDS).
