Dr. Rosa Raudales, Assistant Professor, University of Connecticut. Growers are increasingly capturing irrigation water in ponds or tanks to avoid runoff into the environment. However, re-applying this water to crops increases the risk of distributing plant pathogens. Dr. Raudales recently completed her multidisciplinary PhD studies at the University of Florida, which focused on ways to help growers select the best water treatment technology, such as filtration, chlorination, or copper ionization. Rosa’s project exposed her to many fields, including surveying methods, economic analysis, plant pathology, and horticulture. Her outreach work on watereducationalliance.org won a national award for the best horticulture extension website, and Rosa also won a Florida State Horticultural Society award for the top graduate research presentation. While at the University of Florida, Rosa worked with Dr. Paul Fisher, another noted authority in the water area.
