Ryan Contreras


Associate Professor, Oregon State University
Dr. Contreras is an Associate Professor of Ornamental Plant Breeding in the Department of Horticulture at Oregon State University. He is a plant nerd – but a practical one. His breeding program mainly focuses on plants of economic importance to the Oregon nursery and landscape industries, but minor crops do receive some attention based on their “cool factor”. He teaches plant identification, plant growth and development, and plant propagation – concepts and skills that are used to support and inform the breeding program.
