With plans to begin new initiatives and provide more service to the OrganicERs community, we have added two members to the leadership board.

Following his Ph.D. he was a postdoctoral research associate for Susan Odom and an instructor at the University of Kentucky. His research is currently focused on active learning in large classes with diverse student populations.
