Tune in to The Graduates this Tuesday @ 9AM for an interview with Kelsey Crutchfield-Peters from the Department of Integrative Biology. Kelsey studies how plants access nitrogen in local forests. She’s particularly interested in the role weathered bedrock, beneath the soil, plays as a reservoir of nitrogen. Kelsey discusses her career digging for a deeper understanding of the complicated twists and turns of the nitrogen cycle.
