Matthew Pereyra

Position title: PhD Student - Plant Pathology


I’m a PhD student in the department of Plant Pathology, co-advised by Drs. Gevens and Groves. I completed a Biology B.S. at UW-Madison and then a Plant Pathology M.S. at the University of Minnesota. My current project is focused on evaluating the historical performance of potato disease models in Wisconsin and then attempting to improve spray recommendations to growers in order to reduce costs, environmental impact, and the risk of fungicide resistance.
