We wish to extend a hand of welcome to Dr. Emily Pfeufer, Assistant Extension Professor of Plant Pathology at the University of Kentucky. Emily completed her Ph.D. in Plant Pathology at The Pennsylvania State University, and she joined the UK faculty on April 15th. She is responsible for pathology of tobacco and vegetables. Her primary assignment is Extension, but she will also be conducting applied research with these crops.
We feel quite fortunate to have been able to recruit her to the Commonwealth, and we feel quite confident that she will quickly become an indispensable member of the Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service.
