Mary is an agronomist by training with experience in commercial potato production and research in central Wisconsin. Her current interest is understanding the ways in which data management and evolving disease detection tools can aid commercial growers in detecting, diagnosing, and managing disease in potato cropping systems. She pursued a PhD in Plant Pathology, co-advised by Dr. Russ Groves and Dr. Amanda Gevens, but left the program early to take a job in industry in the Netherlands.
