Cain Hickey is a recently-hired post-doctoral associate at the Cornell Lake Erie Research and Extension Laboratory (CLEREL) in Portland, NY. Cain feels at home as he transitions into his new position as he is a native of North East, PA. He has worked in the grape and wine industry and been involved in viticulture research and extension since 2007, when first employed at the Penn State Lake Erie Regional Grape Research and Extension Center. Cain is a four-time recipient of ASEVís student scholarship, a five-time recipient of the ASEV/ES student scholarship, and a 2015 recipient of an American Wine Society student scholarship. In his new position at CLEREL, Cain will work alongside Terry Bates and others on the USDA-funded precision viticulture management project. He will aid in the development of research and extension publications and presentations and look forward to participating in local extension workshops.
