Emily Whalen, M.S. Student

Emily Whalen

Natural Resources: General

Advisor: Dr. Serita Frey

Research Topic: Soil microbial ecology and biogeochemistry

Emily is investigating the effects of long-term atmospheric nitrogen deposition on soil microbial communities, and is broadly interested in understanding how global change stressors influence microbial cycling of carbon in soils. Her current research focuses on interactions between nitrogen and manganese availability in the decomposition of leaf litter.
