Faculty Spotlight: Professor Emeritus Dr. Pedro Barbosa
Imagine having to walk across the George Washington Bridge just to find some green- green grass, trees, maybe a couple of flowers. This is what Dr. Pedro Barbosa, Entomology Professor Emeritus of the University of Maryland, did throughout his childhood. Growing up in New York, Dr. Barbosa didn’t see much nature in the city and since his family didn’t own a car, he would frequently walk across the GW Bridge to New Jersey for that purpose.
Associate Professor and Extension Specialist in agricultural pest management
Dr. Hooks wants to improve the economic and ecological sustainability of farming communities through comprehensive pest management strategies. Because most crop systems are attacked by a variety of pest organisms including insect pests, weeds, plant-parasitic nematodes, and other plant pathogens, Hooks believes that these different pest complexes must be researched and addressed together in order to develop sustainable farming systems.
