Congratulations Dr. Wade Ross! It’s celebration time after years of hard work of research on DayCent climate change modeling and Random Forest modeling of soil carbon and net primary productivity. Some photos from our potluck party with the lab team. Wade graduated with the Ph.D. dissertation “A region-wide analysis of terrestrial carbon cycling across the Land of the Pines” (2017).

What an interesting article at Vox: https://www.vox.com/2016/7/14/12016710/science-challeges-research-funding-peer-review-process.

Science has pros and cons. And like any other career, a scientist faces multiple challenges, among them to acquire funding for research in a competitive world of limited funding, juggle work and life, and meet expectations to teach, advise, mentor, coach, write proposals, papers, books …., design and conduct innovative research, analyze data, develop models, and create new ideas that advance science. In addition, in academia professional service and hundreds of others little managerial and coordination tasks are demanding. It’s a 24/7 job.
