My research and outreach interests focus on diversifying cropping systems to maintain soil, water, and air quality while ensuring economic sustainability for farmers. As the NE-SARE Coordinator, I will work closely with state and regional agricultural professionals to enhance outreach efforts that help farmers reduce economic and environmental risks. With a primary focus on agronomic crops and grazing systems, my research and Extension activities will make science-based information about alternative cropping systems, soil health and water quality relationships, and value-added crop enterprises accessible. I am also enthusiastic about improving knowledge about food production and human nutrition in both rural and urban communities.
