August 1990- present. Assistant (8/90) to Associate (8/98) to Professor (8/02), Biology Department, University of Central Oklahoma, Edmond, Oklahoma. Research focuses on agricultural sciences, plant physiology, and plant anatomy. Current program involves research in enzymology, phytoremediation, plant production and quality, secondary plant products, and solar energy. Collaborative research is being investigated in the areas of forage growth regulation, legume nitrogen fixation, solar energy conversion, soybean genetics, and weed control with the USDA-ARS Grazinglands Research Laboratory at El Reno, Oklahoma, and the Metabolism Foundation at Edmond, Oklahoma.

July 1986-August 1990. Research Assistant, Agronomy Department, Iowa State University, Ames, Iowa. Responsible for forage greenhouse experiments, selected laboratory equipment, and computer maintenance. Supervised and assisted in fiber, digestibility, and carbohydrate analyses of forage samples. Assisted in plot maintenance and evaluation of biomass and corn silage projects. Provided supervision of up to five hourly workers per day.

June 1984-July 1986. Research Assistant, Agronomy Department, University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, Arkansas. Responsible for growth chamber and local field plot soybean experiments and laboratory equipment. Assisted in plot maintenance and application of chemicals to soybean, cotton, and rice field trials located throughout the state.

September 1982-March 1984. Undergraduate Research Assistant, Agronomy Department, Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana. Analyzed soil samples used in municipal wastewater and sewage sludge treatment (1982). Developed procedures and studied the effect of a growth regulator on germination of crop species (1983-1984).

Ph.D. Dissertation Research

Experiments were conducted to study relationships between metabolism and lignin deposition in forages. Research focused on lignin deposition and phenylpropanoid enzyme activity in greenhouse-grown alfalfa, birdsfoot trefoil, red clover, orchardgrass, bromegrass, and switchgrass. Results indicated that enzyme activity and rate of lignin deposition are closely related.

M.S. Thesis Research

Soybean root NADH oxidation was studied to determine if cultivars demonstrate significantly different root enzyme activity. Roots from soybeans grown in controlled-environment chambers were analyzed by extracting crude protein and spectrophotometrically determining NADH oxidation potential. Results indicated that soybean cultivars can be selected on the basis of different root enzyme activity. Further experiments with this project indicated that there are correlations between root NADH oxidation, H+ efflux, nutrient ion exchange, and potential yield.
