I study cropping systems from multiple angles, aiming to assist Central NY’s transition toward agriculture that strengthens environmental health, food security, and local economy. I am especially interested in enhancing connections between researchers, extension educators, and innovative farmers in this region. Currently, my research addresses soil quality effects on weed competition and long-term soil quality changes in response to organic management.
