Hello and welcome to my faculty page! I am Gerardo Nunez and I am a Lecturer and Undergraduate Advisor in the Horticultural Sciences Department at the University of Florida. I am an educator, a scientist, and a horticulturist. I am interested in developing and teaching engaging, hands-on undergraduate courses that prepare students to succeed in the horticulture industry or in graduate school. Additionally, I am interested in facilitating collegiate out-of-the-classroom activities that allow students to learn by doing and learn from peers. In this page, you will find information about my current teaching, advising, and research activities.
Thanks for visiting and do not hesitate to contact me!
