I currently work with Dr. Rogovska on saturated buffers and other edge of field practices to reduce nitrates. After earning a B. S. in natural resources (Sewanee) and a M. S. in forest biology (Mississippi State University), I worked with the ARS at Mississippi State in charge of nutrient analysis and collection of soil, plant, manure, runoff, leachate, and gas samples for several years before returning to Iowa. While in Osage, Iowa, I worked with the Mitchell County Soil and Water Conservation District with windbreak design, CRP design, and Cedar River monitoring and sampling for nitrates. I am excited to now return to Ames and the ARS. In my spare time, I enjoy many things: swimming, trying to play the piano again, classic cars, model trains, etc. I am married with two children (ISU student and ISU graduate) and three dogs.
