Professional Summary: 

Tony is a soils scientist, trained at the University of California Davis. He studies soil processes, from the pit to landscape scale, and across agricultural, wildland, urban, and degraded contexts. Before arriving at MSU, he taught soils and general education science courses at James Madison University in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. For his postdocs at the University of California Santa Barbara and Arizona State University, he quantified the drawdown of agriculturally relevant soil nutrients by precontact Hawaiians, quantified catenary differentation (extents to which different catenas or hillslope sequences of soils were differentiated) in South Africa's Kruger National Park, and helped quantify the role of tectonic uplift in chemical weathering of the San Gabriel Mountains of southern California.
