Touyee Thao

GFI Fellow - Class of 2020

Graduate student, environmental systems
UC Merced


Touyee will be conducting research on the use of waste derived material, such as biochar in crop production. More explicitly, he will investigate biochar potential to mitigate CO2 emissions in addition to promoting soil health. To accomplish this, Touyee will be using lab incubation experiment in conjunction with mechanistic models to gauge biochar environmental faith and its overall influence on soil CO2 emissions.
