2023 ASEV Merit Award: Dr. Timothy Martinson

A leader and collaborator in grape extension and research at Cornell University, Dr. Timothy Martinson will receive ASEV’s highest honor, the ASEV Merit Award. Martinson led New York’s sustainability initiatives in wine throughout his career and will be presenting his Merit Award presentation, An Insect Ecologist’s “Random Walk” Through the Viticultural Landscape at the 74th ASEV National Conference, in Napa, California this June.

“To be acknowledged by your peers for your life’s work is humbling and a great honor. I am overjoyed to receive the ASEV Merit Award and to be able to share my work with colleagues and future leaders at the National Conference,” says Martinson. “My career has offered me the opportunity to interact with an informed and active grower community and to collaborate with so many great colleagues at Cornell and elsewhere. Any impacts my program has fostered are the direct result of cooperative efforts with colleagues and growers.”
