I’m Monica Lewandowski, and I work in the Department of Plant Pathology, in the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences.
Plant pathology is the study of plant diseases. It’s not the most well-known of disciplines, but plant pathology is really important! It’s about crop loss (e.g. Irish potato famine), food quality and food safety, and the environment (forests in trouble). Our work ranges from the molecular genetics of disease resistance in plants, to applied disease management in crops > Read more
I created this blog to share timely stories – the unusual, the weird, the alarming, the funny – to help others become aware of what we do, and maybe even become inspired to join us in our work.
In my job as academic program coordinator, my responsibilities include graduate and undergraduate programs and education outreach. In the spring, I teach Societal Issues: Pesticides, Alternatives and the Environment (PLNTPTH 4597) > More info
I invite you to contact me if you want to learn more about classes, our majors, grad program, internships and other opportunities, or visit our website > plantpath.osu.edu
