Primary interests are the intersection of agriculture and the environment, and the development and implementation of sustainable production systems.
Education and outreach experience has included development of state- and regional-level educational programs in sustainable agriculture and nutrient management. As part of this effort, have given more than 500 presentations to growers, and more than 75 to scientists and farm advisors. Publications include more than 40 peer-reviewed journal articles, and numerous book chapters and trade and educational publications.
Economic determinants of household food consumption; consumption effects of economic and pricing policies; design and impacts of food assistance; determinants of intrahousehold allocation of food and other resources; determinants of program effectiveness. I am also interested in survey research methods and in how to design and implement interdisciplinary educational curricula.
