Research Interests
My research interests focus on a variety of sustainable production and ecological topics, including mycorrhizal associations during production, plant response to environmental and production stresses, water quality, plant nutrition, and below ground responses (root dynamics, soil respiration) to climate change drivers, grazing, and production.

Current Projects
1. Establishment of a hydrologic observatory to support long-term agro-ecosystem research, education, and outreach in the upper Mississippi river basin
2. Incorporating dairy livestock into agroecosystem research: Grazing responsibly for a sustainable tomorrow
3. Effect of different production practices on soil respiration, plant water potential, and leaf level gas exchange
