Specialty: Soil Genesis and Classification

Research program focuses on pedogenic and weathering processes in the rock-saprolite-soil sections of the Piedmont and Mountain provinces of North Carolina; improvement of Soil Taxonomy; phosphorus reactions in contrasting soil mineral suites; and soil map unit and soilscape evaluation in technology transfer. Basic approach for research is to improve our understanding of how management practices interact with different kinds of soil and then develop systems of extrapolating soil management research results to appropriate sites via technical classification systems.
