Job Description: I am the College of Agriculture and Life Science Coordinator for Sustainable Agriculture and Coordinator for Sustainable Farming Systems Unit of The Center for Environmental Farming Systems. For the past seven years I have been a member of a team-taught a graduate level course offered jointly by Duke, NCSU and UNC (Chapel Hill). The course is designed to provide an interdisciplinary perspective on interrelationships between agriculture, conservation of natural resources and environmental systems and the economic development process. 


Role in Forage Group: My research centers on applied grassland ecology and management with ruminant animals. Current emphasis includes silvo-pastoral agroforestry systems and cropping systems that integrate grazing ruminants. Training, technology transfer and educational programs are designed for county agents, farmers and agribusiness personnel striving to improve pasture and grassland management.
