Cecilia Crespo
ORISE Post Doc



I joined NLAE in Ames in July 2023 as an ORISE postdoc fellow, focusing on carbon and nutrient cycling in Midwestern cropping systems. I earned my Agricultural Engineering degree in Argentina, followed by doctoral studies in Soil Science. During my PhD, I explored the impact of intensification practices on soil carbon and nutrient dynamics in the Argentinean Humid Pampas. My research interests include studying cropping systems for resource use efficiency and their effects on soil health and nutrient dynamics.
