  • I study the ecology of grazing livestock—how domestic herbivores interact with their environment, how humans influence this, and the good and bad things that can arise from these relationships. My current projects focus on the interactions of cattle with poisonous plants, large carnivores, ecological health, and the broader food system. I appreciate science as a necessary but not sufficient tool for addressing our most complex challenges, and love what emerges from integrating other ways of knowing into my work.
