Claudia Wagner-Riddle

Claudia grew up in Brazil and developed an interest in soil and climate after a frost destroyed many of the coffee plantations in her region. The plantations were replaced with annual crops such as soybeans and corn, and that brought with it a lot of soil erosion. Her first summer job as a student working with a researcher on no-till and cover crops furthered her interest in soil and ways of managing it. The experience also sparked an interest in agriculture. After completing her bachelor’s degree, she took a research position in Germany looking at soil erosion, which inspired her to eventually pursue graduate research. Today, she is a world-renowned environmental science researcher focusing on the mitigation of greenhouse gases emitted by agricultural production systems.

It’s both #WomenInSTEM day and #CdnAgDay2020. We have awesome collaborators and students to celebrate both hashtags! @karidunfield @alison_elinor @KateCongreves @LauraVanEerd @rebeccaejohnson @SGuelphBrown @KarenAshleyTee to name a few…


Prof. Laura Van Eerd calls soil science the next frontier as people are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of soil health for agri-food systems.
