I am a Plant Pathologist, Associate Professor at the Agro-Environmental Sciences Department at the University of Puerto Rico. Currently, I am in charge of the Roots, Tubers, and Bananas working collections. Each collection is conserved and maintained as a source of vegetative seed for the farmers, for evaluations of the potential agronomic characteristics for the high land region farmers of the Island.
