About Me

Hello Readers!

I’m Emma, and right now I’m working on my PhD in Agronomy at UW-Madison. My research looks at the potassium needs of soybeans. I’m in a soybean and small grains agronomy lab, so when I’m not sitting on my computer with GIS open I spend a lot of time pulling soil samples and taking stand counts.

I have two degrees from the Ohio State University– an MS in Crop Science and a BS in Forestry, Fisheries, and Wildlife. During undergrad I worked in a honey bee laboratory looking at landscape ecology and insecticide drift. My MS research was in management zone delineation for variable rate seeding in soybeans.

In my free time, I like to ride my bicycle, swing dance, and spend time with my dogs.
