Research Interests: Most research concerning chestnuts in the USA are focused on American chestnut restoration. My interests include the use of hypovirulence as a practical biocontrol both in forest settings and in orchards, along with best practices for farmers wishing to integrate livestock into an orchard setting, otherwise known as silvopasture.
