Vermont Research & Projects:

Part of the research collaborative The Vermont Agricultural Resilience in a Changing Climate. This is a long-term initiative that seeks to work with farmers, agricultural service providers, researchers and community organizations to address the impacts of climate change in Vermont.

International Research & Projects:

Agroecology and Rural Livelihoods in Coffee Regions of Mesoamerica. My research activities in this area focus on the potential of agroecology to support farmer livelihoods and conserve ecosystem services in agroforestry-dominated landscapes. Most of our previous work focused on shade coffee, but we are expanding it to include other forms of agroforestry, such as homegardens, and food crops (such as corn, beans and vegetables).
