I just got a job as Assistant Professor of Agroecology at the University of Florida's Tropical Research and Education Center. I am working to develop a program exploring big picture patterns and processes driving agricultural systems and crop production to understand how farms can remain profitable while conserving natural resources and protecting the environment. The new lab's website is currently under construction.

I have a PhD in Ecology from Utah State University from the Department of Biology. I studied orchard system modeling and tree physiology to understand the impact of tree size and architecture on tree growth and fruit production. For my research program,. I obtained my B.S. and M.S. at the University of Michigan in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and the School of Natural Resources and Environment, respectively.
