Soil processes are the foundation of healthy ecosystems

We apply fundamental biogeochemical research to improve the environmental footprint and productivity of agriculture.

Research Themes

Improving water quality and decreasing greenhouse gas emissions at sub-field to watershed scales

Predicting environmental benefits of diversified cropping systems from a mechanistic perspective

What is soil organic matter, why does it persist, and how should we manage it?

Leveraging microbial ecology and geochemistry to improve nutrient availability and retention
