What are your job duties/job responsibilities in the College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources?

I worked previously in Plant Sciences from 2008 to 2017, and returned in 2021.

All of the new opportunities for learning.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I spend most of my free time outside with my wife and dog: exploring Columbia’s trails or relaxing in the shade.
What is something your co-workers/other CAFNR employees don’t know about you?
I’m a huge nerd! Yes, I do all of the nerdy things that you’re thinking about right now! Tabletop role playing games, board games, collectible card games; if it requires strategy and tough decision making I’m game to try it.
