As an evolutionary ecologist and entomologist interested in agroecological issues, much of my research focuses upon the application of evolutionary phenomenon to agricultural systems. All ecological systems are “changing over generations”, by understanding the parameters underlying these changes we can develop more resilient systems. In addition to my research interests, I also spend a lot of time with students of various ages and backgrounds. At UVM, I have the great opportunity to teach a wide spectrum of classes, from basic biology to ecological agriculture. I truly believe in the power of knowledge and the responsibility of educators in building regenerative agrifood systems.
