Matthew Gullickson is a Ph.D. student in the Applied Plant Science Program at the University of Minnesota and is advised by Dr. Mary Rogers. Matthew has spent the last few years studying chemical and exclusion management strategies for spotted-wing drosophila in fall-bearing raspberries. His research interests are in integrated pest management, sustainable horticulture and agriculture, and fruit and vegetable production. Matthew’s interest in nature and plants began as a child helping in his father’s garden. This led him to work at the student-managed organic garden while pursuing a B.A. in biology from Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, MN. After graduating in 2016, he worked for The Nature Conservancy, Cedar Creek Ecosystem Science Reserve, and the University of Minnesota as a field technician specializing in plant identification and prairie ecology. His combined interests in horticulture, ecology, and applied research are what attracted him to the University of Minnesota’s Applied Plant Science graduate program.
