Jake teaches Soil Science, Energy and Society, Introduction to Environmental Science, and Agriculture. His research interests include biogeochemical cycling, agricultural ecosystems, and climate change. He is currently interested in assessing how different agricultural practices impact soil carbon and nitrogen cycling so we can better understand what techniques lead to more soil carbon sequestration, less greenhouse gas emissions, and mitigation of climate change.
