I am interested in how different diverse cropping and management rotations can reduce pest pressure for dairy farmers looking to produce all of the food, forage, and fuel needed to manage their farm. I am also interested in the fate of neonicotinoid insecticides in the environment, specifically how they impact aquatic arthropod communities.
