My Saint Michael's:
I have been conduction applied agricultural research on farms throughout Vermont since I moved here in 2006. My research has focused on biological control of agricultural pests through enhancing native natural enemy communities. More recently, I have brought my love for field-based research and passion for teaching into the classroom to benefit the students of Saint Michael's College and the University of Vermont.
Outside Saint Michael's:
I enjoy snowshoeing, backcountry skiing, and hiking with my two Bernese Mountain dogs, and cooking and eating great food.
