My research interests are centered on cultivation of the white button mushroom (Agaricus bisporus) and oyster mushroom (Pleurotus ostreatus). I am interested in looking at ways to improve production efficiency based on studying changes in microbial population dynamics during composting (Phase II) to determine the influence that these populations have on the nutrition of the mushroom as well as how they relate to mushroom yield and disease development.
