Dr. Scott Lukas, who earned his MS and PhD degrees from the Dept. of Tropical Plant and Soil Sciences under the mentorship of Joe DeFrank, was recently selected for an Endowed Professorship for North West Berry Production and Management at Oregon State U.

Scott attributes his success in academia to the skills and lessons imparted by Joe throughout his graduate education. Scott was recently promoted to Associate Professor with indefinite tenure at OSU, in which he will carry to his new position in the NW Berry Program. 

In addition to his programmatic duties in research, Extension, and teaching, Scott will serve as the lead OSU collaborator on the USDA-ARS Cooperative Breeding Program and Berry Program Research Leader at the North Willamette Research and Extension Center.

Scott currently leads a multi-state berry research cooperative examining how new technologies for soil and crop management can increase resilience and productivity of organically produced blueberry.
