Anne Elise passed her pre-candidacy exams (prelims) just in time for the holiday weekend, and is now a PhD candidate. Congratulations on passing this important milestone, Anne Elise!
This summer we are joined by Aminata Fofana and Sydney Fuller, two undergraduates in the Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program at UM-SEAS. Ami and Sydney are already enjoying some of the perks of doing research on local vegetable farms!
Two new PhD students, Alison Bressler and Anne Elise Stratton, have joined the lab this fall. You can read more about their backgrounds and research interests here.

Ryan Nelson, our very own Doris Duke Conservation Scholar, presented a poster today entitled “Out of Thin Air: Assessing Legume Nitrogen Fixation Inputs on Organic Farms” at the Diversity in Environmental Programs Symposium (Ann Arbor). This symposium capped off the 8 week DDCS Program, which brought undergraduates from around the country to the University of Michigan. Best wishes, Ryan, as you head back to Wesleyan University for another semester!
