Research Interests

One: I have an ongoing line of research on the topic of economic evaluation of best management practices to improve water quality, soil health, and irrigation efficiency.

Two: I have a broad interest in the use of social sciences to evaluate farmers’ behavior to adoption of tools that address water quality, soil health, and water quantity management in agriculture.
