James B O'Sullivan, Ph.D
James is a postdoctoral researcher in the Kravchenko lab at Michigan State University. Using enzyme zymography, X-ray computed tomography and elemental mapping, James will unravel the mechanism of improved soil C storage under cover cropping. James recently completed his PhD where he examined how phosphorus acquisition and symbiotic N2 fixation is impacted by rising atmospheric CO2 concentrations. James has a passion for all things soil science, plant physiology and agricultural production. If there's an open soil pit, James will probably be in it.
