My work explores the questions:
How do agricultural management practices impact the ecosystem services the soil provides?
How can we amplify and better utilize soil-derived ecological services in our row cropping systems? 
 
My research integrates approaches from agronomy, ecosystem ecology, entomology, weed ecology, soil science, statistics, and data science. 
Interests:
  • Agricultural Ecology
  • Soil
  • Agricultural Best Management Practices (BMPs)
