I am a PhD candidate in agronomy working with Dr. David Mortensen to develop ecologically sound farming systems that are productive, economical, and workable for farmers.  I am also pursuing a minor in ecology. 

My current research focuses on using cover crops to improve cropping system productivity, sustainability, and resilience in the face of challenging climatic conditions.  For more information, including my CV, publications, photos, and videos, please visit my personal website at
