Ask The Expert: Q&A with Fernando!

​Q & A with scientist Fernando Lopez.

From Mr. Lopez:

“I am fascinated by soil carbon. My current research looks at understanding how the mineralogy of and microbial communities in thawing permafrost interact with root carbon inputs and the impact on soil carbon losses. I earned my B.S. in agronomy, there I was able to explore different soils across Mexico, my home country. I completed my M.Sc. in environmental sciences where I studied soil organic carbon spatial distribution in a boreal region of Ontario. I love hiking, cooking and listening to Latin music.”
