Biography

My research is in adapting and evaluating a tabletop strawberry system that has been widely adopted in Europe and Canada to determine its feasibility for use in Minnesota. I am additionally interested in outreach efforts to determine and address the challenges farmers face while transitioning to more sustainable production methods.
