My Saint Michael's:
I have been conducting applied agricultural research on farms throughout Vermont since I moved here in 2006. Shortly thereafter, I brought my love for field-based research and passion for teaching into the classroom to benefit the students of Saint Michael's College. My current research focuses on sustainable pest management, in particular the development of appropriate Integrated Pest Management tactics for northeastern organic vegetable growers.
Outside Saint Michael's:
I enjoy snowshoeing and hiking with my family, as well as cooking and eating great food.
