On behalf of the Evaluation Committee, we are pleased to announce the winner of the 2019 Environments Travel Award. This has been granted to:
Dr. Sutie Xu, a postdoctoral researcher at The University of Tennessee, USA. She works in the studies on soil health in a variety of ecosystems types under different climate conditions. The objective of these studies is to understand the response of soil properties and processes to management strategies to improve all aspects of ecosystem services, including provisioning, regulating, and supporting. Up now, she has been working with the response of soil carbon dynamics to grazing management. In the future, she would like to continue her research in the area of soil quality and agroecosystem management. Her overall academic goal is to understand the soil physical, chemical, and biological processes and explore strategies on enhancing soil fertility and productivity, carbon and nutrient dynamics, ecosystem sustainability, and resilience.
