Who we are and what we do

We are a group of research scientists, graduate students, staff and faculty working in the Department of Crop and Soil Environmental Sciences (CSES) at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia.

Our combined research, teaching and outreach programs focus on the development of new techniques and strategies for the rehabilitation of drastically disturbed soils and landscapes. We work with the full continuum of lands affected by mining and mineral processing, roadway and utility corridor development, urbanization, dredge material management, industrial and municipal residuals, and wetland creation/restoration.
