My research focuses on agricultural producer-level decision making as it interacts with environmental and applied economic constraints. I have worked closely with U.S. dairy and beef stakeholders to answer applied research questions that incorporate the interaction between economic concepts and biological processes of the production system studied. I value working in multi-disciplinary teams and building strong working relationships between students, faculty, and stakeholders.
