How do you explain your work to someone for the first time?
The soil is teaming with life and dynamic processes. I love soil! I try to understand how organisms and processes in the soil can inform larger-scale issues such as adaptation to climate change, mitigation of climate change, and sustainable land management. Through thoughtful management of soils, the medium through which life is sustained on our planet, we can create win-wins for society and for the environment. This change in management and perspective is the change I work for.
