I specialize in forage production and utilization. This involves both annual and perennial forage crops and their interaction with consuming animals. In this role, I collaborate with agencies and organizations throughout Pennsylvania and the Northeast that have forage related interests. My research is primarily oriented towards conserved forages. An additional area of research is the production of perennial grasses for biomass production on reclaimed strip mine sites.
My other interests include competing in Triathlons and Ultra Marathons.
