Hello! I am a range agroecologist and extension faculty member in the Department of Animal Sciences at Colorado State University. I study the ecology of grazing livestock—the interactions of livestock with their environment, the interactions of humans with livestock, and the good and bad things that emerge from these relationships. The interplay of human cultures with domestic herbivore cultures is endlessly fascinating to me.
I earned my PhD from CSU in Rangeland Ecosystem Science in 2019, my MS in Conservation Biology from SUNY ESF in 2012, and my BS in Natural Resource Management from Cornell University in 2002. I have worked as a field biologist, a livestock producer, and a grant manager. Check out the menu above for more information about me and my work.
