Advisor Comments (Helen Kraus):

There is almost no limit to Robert’s passions within the realms of science and breeding, as evident by his bachelors degrees in both Horticulture and Animal Science. Such a combination of degrees does not happen very often but Robert has made it work. His careful attention to detail and planning has made this goal achievable. Robert has been very active in research working with several different research programs on campus. Robert has many options open to him and he will make his chosen path a success.
