University Park, Pennsylvania 16802


  1. B.S. in Sustainable Plant System, Ohio State

Cameron comes to us from The Ohio State University where he majored in Sustainable Plant System with a focus in Turfgrass Science.

Throughout his tenure at Ohio State he managed to juggle playing Men’s Division I Lacrosse while pursuing his passion for plant pathology and excelling in the classroom. Cameron further developed his knowledge of plant pathology, agronomy, and various molecular techniques through an internship he conducted at Clemson University’s Pee Dee Research facility under Dr. Bruce Martin in the summer of 2014.

He spent the summer of 2015 integrated in John Kaminski’s turfgrass pathology research program at the Joseph A. Valentine Turfgrass Research Center on Penn States campus along side research technician Tim Lulis. Cameron is currently a Masters candidate under Dr. John Kaminski studying Agronomy with a focus in turfgrass pathology. The scope of his research will have both an applied component, which will focus on giving practical information back to the turf industry, and a molecular component, which will help us gain or extent our knowledge of pathogen biology. Cameron is a very driven, ambitious, and passionate individual with hopes of leaving his mark in the field of plant pathology.
