As a first year Phd student at SNRE, Bressler is working with Professor Blesh on the intersection of human and natural systems in the context of Michigan grain farmers. The research is specifically focused on addressing excess N in agroecosystems through a variety of ecological techniques. She plans to integrate biogeochemical analysis of sustainable agricultural systems with social science studies of receptiveness of farmers and the public to an agriculture system dominated by polyculture and cover crops.
