The focus of my research is on coupled human and natural systems; specifically, ecological and social facets of sustainable land management. Several current research projects address the strategic integration of perennials into agricultural landscapes to meet multifunctional societal goals. Other projects address the establishment of restoration baselines and impacts of restoration practices. I use a combination of historical investigation, field studies, and both quantitative and qualitative inquiry. While my research spans plot (<100 m2) to regional scales (10,000-100,000 km2), my focus is on informing landscape-level (10-10,000 km2) management. The strength of my research lies in synthesis and integration.
