Graduate Student in the Berhe Lab
Manisha Dolui earned her undergraduate degree in Zoology and a post-graduate degree in Environmental Science from the University of Calcutta, India. After graduation, I have worked as a project assistant for the Global Change Program at Jadavpur University. She joined Tennessee State University (TSU) in 2015, where she worked on a research project related to environmental remediation for her MS thesis that was focused on the adsorption of antibiotics by soil minerals. Currently, she is an Environmental Systems Ph.D. candidate in Asmeret Asefaw Berhe's Soil Biogeochemistry lab at the University of California, Merced where she studies buried soil organic carbon vulnerability due to change in the climate. Her research will help to understand the variability in soil organic carbon, mechanisms that control the storage of deep soil carbon, and will predict the future disturbances that can affect the soil carbon stock and release of CO2 to the atmosphere.
