MSc: Qiting Chen
Qiting is a master’s student who finished her BSc at the University of Alberta, with a double major in Conservation Biology & Wildlife and Rangeland Resources Management. Qiting will examine the relationships between species diversity of above-ground plant community, and below-ground carbon storage in agroforestry systems.
PhD: Mark Baah
Mark received his B.Sc. in Natural Resource Management from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (Ghana) and a MSc. in Forestry from the University of New Brunswick (Canada) with emphasis on predicting the probability of tree species persistence along environmental gradients. Mark will be investigating greenhouse gas emissions rates and soil carbon stability under different agroforestry systems.
Farrah’s expertise is in ecosystem biogeochemistry, with emphasis on soil nutrient cycling. She received her PhD from the University of Maine in 2011, where she studied the long-term impacts of acid deposition on forest soil carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus dynamics. Farrah will be examining aspects of soil carbon cycling, and the temperature sensitivity of processes involved in soil organic matter degradation.
