Not long into her undergrad studies, new NDSU Assistant Professor of Soil Fertility Kelsey Griesheim, knew that she wanted to work in soil sciences. Griesheim received her undergraduate degree in crop sciences from the University of Illinois. Her studies continued at UI where she obtained a Master’s Degree and her PhD. Her position with NDSU is focused primarily on nitrogen management research, but does have some teaching responsibilities. “It’s a lot of fun and there’s a great benefit as a scientist to revisit some of the basic principles of what you’re studying. It forces me to look at things that I might not have looked at otherwise.”
