Current Research:  My project is on the mechanized application of SPLAT, a pheromone-infused wax used for mating disruption in cranberry marshes.   I am co-advised by Dr. Brian Luck in the Biological Systems Engineering department.  We will be using unmanned aerial vehicles and retrofitted boom sprayers to deploy SPLAT.

Background: I received a BA in International Studies and a minor in African Studies from the University of Wisconsin, Madison.  Since graduating in 2009, I assumed many roles within the agricultural value chain. My professional experience has seen me managing a vineyard, working at an agricultural research station, an agritech start-up and a consulting firm that conducts research primarily on agricultural projects.  I am originally from Orange, California.  I enjoy cooking, gardening, surfing and hiking.
