Curriculum Vitae

Christopher Toy
Ph.D. Student, CSU InTERFEWS Program

I am interested in the ecology of multi-species agricultural systems and the use of perennial plants in such systems. By better understanding these systems and their interactions, I believe it will eventually be possible to create systems for any region that build soil health and contribute to ecosystem functions rather than degrading them.

I am originally from Toledo, Ohio and got my B.S. in evolution and ecology from The Ohio State University.

I am currently part of a Nitrogen x Irrigation experiment trying to better understand soil and plant responses to nitrogen and water deficits and their interactions. I am interested in how these treatments affect crop available nitrogen, crop nitrogen uptake, what source of nitrogen crops are utilizing, and crop yield.

B.S. Soil and Crop Sciences, Colorado State University

I am a research associate currently pursuing a masters in AgroEcosystem management through my employee student privilege. I hope to apply my research and educational experience towards improved leveraging of ecological relationships between human behavior and multiple soil processes that influence agroecosystem sustainability. I am currently researching questions around land use management effects on deep soil organic carbon dynamics in semi-arid agroecosystems.
