I am a Crop and Weed Scientist at Rodale Institute, Kutztown, PA. My research program focuses on cover crop-based weed management in organic no-till soybean and corn, integrated grain and forage systems, technological adoption & innovation, intercropping, and intensification in regenerative organic systems. The current projects encompass agronomic configurations for no-till soybean, cover crop management, electric weed control, perennial living mulch systems, and industrial hemp-based crop rotation. Before joining Rodale, I was an Agronomist at USDA-ARS, Stoneville, MS where he worked on a Long-Term Agroecosystem Research (LTAR) project. I did my MS in Weed Science from Tribhuvan University, Nepal, and my Ph.D. in plant and soil science from Texas Tech University, USA.
