My first experience in the United States was during my undergraduate period. I have completed a 12 month on job training in the United States through The Ohio Program. I have worked in a specialty crop farm in Michigan, and in a hydroponic tomato greenhouses in New York.

My research is focused on modeling weed management in agro and natural ecosystems. I have written and collaborated in many scientific publications about surveys, management, ecology, biology and resistance of weeds. I have also presented and collaborated to research/extension posters and talks in international conferences.
