Question: Do you think you will continue to study this for your entire career?

  1. This is a great question. The real answer is no, I don’t think so. The cool thing about science and engineering is that you get to work on a wide variety of projects. In the previous generation, it used to be normal for people to get a job out of college at some company, and then move up the ranks of that company for 20-30 years before you retire. These days, people typically switch companies or projects every 2-3 years, so things are always new and interesting.



  1. If this means soil and ecosystems, whether natural or managed (agroecosystems), probably so.
    I really enjoy studying soil – there are so many facets that I will never run out of questions to investigate.
    Soil can be an entryway into almost any other branch of science.
    I also really enjoy teaching others about soil and trying to get them to understand how important it is to their lives, how important it is to take care of it, and to get them excited about it.
