overview

I teach graduate classes at Tarleton State University, Stephenville, TX 76401. I currently supervise 3 MSc students as well as one graduate student at Texas A&M University. My research program focuses on grassland ecology, mostly at the plant-animal interface, with special emphasis on legumes. Topics include grassland restoration, native legume domestication and the role of condensed tannins in ruminant systems.
