Schattman’s research aims to lead to agricultural resilience in a changing climate while simultaneously protecting natural resources. She works with specialty crop producers and agricultural advisors to identify and address production challenges, specifically through the lens of climate change adaptation. This approach is grounded in complementary traditions of agroecology and participatory action research. Current research includes studying how forage and vegetable crops interact with PFAS in affected soils. She teaches courses on cropping and sustainable food systems.
