M.S. Student in Agroecology
B.A. Environmental Studies – Brown University 2019
My research examines the agroecosystem benefits of interseeded cover crops in organic corn systems with an emphasis on nutrient cycling and weed suppression. More broadly I am interested in how agroecosystem and regenerative based management approaches can mitigate the effects of climate change on our agricultural production systems and promote sustainability. I grew up in the suburbs of Boston around small organic farms but my interest in researching regenerative agriculture was solidified after living in a yurt and working on a farm in Maine in 2020. When I’m not soil sampling I volunteer coach the UW Women’s rowing team, run as much as the weather will allow, and frequent local trivia events.
