Dr. Robson’s CV

Research Areas

As Dean of Agricultural and Urban Programs I develop and implement degree and non-degree undergraduate and graduate programs in entrepreneurial and innovative education in the agricultural sciences. The major targets careers in agricultural education and extension, government service, and agribusiness as well as an owner/operator of farming enterprises. Areas of focus include controlled-environment agriculture, agricultural policy and entrepreneurship, energy efficiency, and niche agriculture, including agro-tourism, community-supported agriculture, and sustainable agriculture. This includes a master’s degree in the business and science of agriculture, as well as non-degree certificate programs. Additionally I am responsible for the Office of Continuing and Professional Education, the Agricultural Leadership Program, and the IR-4 Minor Use Pesticide Program.

Research Highlights

My research focus is on pesticide exposure to farmers and farm families in developing countries, the major platform for this is the NIH FIC Thai International Training and Research in Environmental and Occupational Health grant.
