Debjani Was Selected as International Soil Modeling Consortium Featured Soil Modeller The link to the page Debjani Sihi is an assistant professor in the Department of Environmental Sciences at Emory University (Atlanta, GA, USA).
USDA NIFA grant from the Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Program (BRDDP). (https://www.nifa.usda.gov/grants/programs/beginning-farmer-rancher-development-program-bfrdp?utm_content=&utm_medium=email&utm_name=&utm_source=govdelivery&utm_term=) The Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Program provides grants to organizations for education, mentoring, and technical assistance initiatives for beginning farmers or ranchers.
We are thrilled to receive funding from Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory (EMSL). Coupling X-ray computed tomography images with ModEx inspired laboratory manipulation experiment for predicting greenhouse gas fluxes from terrestrial–aquatic interfaces
Excited to share that we will partner with Rodale Institute on a project funded by the USDA’s Partnerships for Climate-Smart Commodities program. Project Title: Quantifying the Potential to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Increase Carbon Sequestration by Growing and Marketing Climate-Smart Commodities in the Southern Piedmont (Total Funding: $25,000,000).
We recently received an award from NSF DEB to improve our understanding of biophysical drivers of the CH4 source sink transition in Northern Forests. See here see project link for more information.
S.A. WILDE EARLY CAREER ACHIEVEMENT AWARD In further recognition of Dr. Wilde’s role as a mentor of developing soil scientists, the S.A. Wilde Early Career Achievement Award is established to recognize significant accomplishment in forest, range or wildland soil research by an individual up to seven years post completion of a terminal degree program.

Duties include management of ongoing projects in the laboratory, greenhouse, and field.
The capacity of soil to hold water will be critical to determine how well farms in some regions of the United States manage the problem of prolonged heat stress due to climate change, a new study suggests.
Debjani Sihi (right) demonstrates using the Nix Pro to measure iron content in soil with colleagues Gaurav Jha (left) and Biswanath Dari. Iron is a vital micronutrient to grow plants and “a fundamental mineral species that dictates many other soil functions, like carbon storage, greenhouse gas emissions and nitrogen and phosphorous recycling,“ says Sihi, a biogeochemist in Emory’s Department of Environmental Sciences.
