Dr. Wagner received his B.S. in Environmental Biology from Heidelberg College, an MS in Microbiology from North Carolina State University, and a Ph.D. in Agronomy (Soil Microbiology) from Clemson University. He spent two years as a postdoctoral research associate with the USDA, working on herbicide biodegradation.

Dr. Wagner's research interest is microbial ecology, emphasizing bioremediation, plant-parasite interactions, effects of management practices on soil ecology, and poultry microbiology. He also directs the department's program for K-8 pre-service teachers and is the director of a project funded by NASA and the US Department of Education to develop a new course, called "Supernova", to support these teachers as well as inservice teachers.
