Dr. Andrew D. Cartmill is a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Pioneer Farm in the UW-Platteville School of Agriculture. Andrew earned his B.Sc. (Honours) degree in Horticultural Technology and Management from the University of Central Lancashire/Myerscough College in Preston, Lancashire, UK. He received his M.S. and Ph.D degrees in Horticulture from Texas A&M University in College Station, TX.

Andrew's research interests focus on a variety of sustainable production and ecological topics, including mycorrhizal associations during nursery, greenhouse, and field production, with emphasis on plant response to environmental and production stresses, water quality, plant nutrition, and below ground responses (root dynamics, soil respiration) to climate change drivers in oak savanna (tree-grass interactions). He is a member of the Ecological Society of America and the International Mycorrhizal Society.
