Our own Josh Nasielski, PhD student, won a prestigious award from the International Plant Nutrition Institute. 37 graduate students representing 20 countries were chosen. Below is write-up on the site about Josh and his work.
Mr. Joshua Nasielski, University of Guelph, Guelph, Ontario, Canada is working towards his Ph.D. agronomy and crop physiology. His dissertation title is “the Nitrogen Economy of Agro-ecosystems: Soil Moisture as Regulator of Maize Nitrogen demand.” The goal of his research is to improve our understanding of how plant available water and nitrogen (N) supply impact maize metabolism and yield forming processes, in order to improve N management practices in maize and refine N fertilizer decision support systems (DSS). Mr. Nasielski can see himself as a professor at a research university or a staff scientist in agribusiness.
