My research explores ways to re-design farming and food systems in the face of changing human and ecosystem contexts. I approach this work primarily with soil health-centered and farmer-participatory initiatives, and invite research collaborations focusing on: farmer decision-making, agricultural management impacts on soil, water, and landscapes, biodiversity within and adjacent to farms, multifunctional food production systems, and new farmer training.
