Michael's research as a graduate student involves modeling the interactions between trees, crops and animals integrated in agroforestry systems in three dimensional space. Interactions include competition for below ground water and nutrients, above ground sunlight, and forage quality under shade. Also interested in modeling carbon allocation within trees and nut production of Juglans nigra.
