I focus on organic, transitioning, and low-input sustainable pasture and forage management for producers in Oregon. My past research has included integrating native grasses and forbs into horse and beef pasture systems as well as using proximal sensing technologies for pasture monitoring. Current interests include optimizing warm-season grazing options for Oregon; the potential use of handheld proximal sensing technologies in organic or low-input systems; and assessing the challenges faced by organic and low-input graziers with regards to pasture and forage management.
