Current Focus: Effect of Aerated Irrigation Through Subsurface Drip Irrigation on Soil Thermal and Physical Properties
Additional Interests: I would like to dig deeper by conducting research into soil respiration.
Project Descriptionconducting research to quantify the effect aerated irrigation has on microorganism populations by manipulating the water-to-air ratio in the fertigation.
Why does this topic interest you?Soil fascinates me, and having healthy soil is essential to continued life on Earth. We live in a technological world, where society thinks they will find the answers to solve every problem; however, we must learn how to use the available technology to understand how to properly feed the soil in order to set future generations up for success.
What are your professional aspirations?I aspire to become a soil scientist and private pilot.
Do you have any advice for future researchers?Find something you are interested in and research it. Always be asking why and think about things from a different perspective.
