For her Masters in Soils and Biogeochemistry, Taryn is working on improving nutrient use efficiency and reducing environmental impacts of food production. Her graduate studies at UC Davis are centered around climate change and agriculture. Specifically, her research address how improved agricultural techniques such as reduced tillage, drip irrigation and cover cropping affect nitrous oxide emissions in tomato cropping systems. After completing her masters, she hopes to continue in agricultural education and outreach, bringing together information and people so that research is not isolated from those who can use it.
