Support Staff and Students
My research focuses on soil carbon and nitrogen dynamics, carbon sequestration, bioenergy, conservation tillage, soil testing, production agriculture, and reclamation. Laboratory research deals with basic soil chemistry/biogeochemistry plus applied analyses to complement field research. Field research is centered on nutrient use efficiency and cycling in various production systems; and soil carbon and nitrogen dynamics. Further emphasis has been placed on soil science/agronomic – environmental relationships, soil carbon sequestration, and bioenergy over the past several years.
I currently teach an upper-level undergraduate course in Soil Fertility and Plant Nutrient Management (SCSC 422) and associated lab (SCSC 432) each Fall semester and a graduate course in Soil Fertility and Chemistry (SCSC 627) each Spring semester.
