I am Assistant Professor of Soil and Plant Community Restoration in OSU's School of Environment and Natural Resources. My research focuses on developing methods for the restoration and management of ecosystem properties and functions including vegetation community composition, habitat structure, fire regimes and carbon and nutrient cycling. Current research sites include temperate, semi-arid and tropical ecosystems.
Since 2000: Priv. Doz. of Soil Science and Soil Ecology at INRES, University of Bonn, Germany; 2002-2008: Professor of Soil Science at El Colegio de la Frontera Sur, Mexico; Since 2009: Senior Scientist (Soil degradation) at Wageningen University and Research Center
Anders J. Hansen (AJH) has extensive experience working with characterization of genetic material in difficult samples either being aDNA, eDNA, forensic genetics or degraded DNA. AJH was one for the first to use DNA technology to characterize species contents in ancient environmental samples like ice and permafrost. Currently AJH’s research interests predominant focus on forensic genetics as well as genetic identification and discovery by metagenomic analysis of DNA and RNA in complex tissue samples, recent and ancient sediments including permafrost with the aim of describing the composition, regulation and distribution of genes, microorganism, phage’s, viruses and more.

Chiyuan Miao is a full professor in the Faculty of Geographical Science,Beijing Normal University, China. His researches mainly focus on the soil erosion (slope scale), Eco-hydrology (watershed scale) and climate change (continent/global scale).
Professor in soil-landscape modelling at Faculty of Agriculture and Environment, the University of Sydney. Australian Research Council (ARC) Future Fellow. He is passionate about the role of soil in managing climate change, food, water, energy security and maintaining biodiversity. He has more than 170 international journal publications, won numerous awards, and is recognised as the leader in digital soil mapping and modelling.
He is a member of the editorial board of Geoderma, PLOS ONE.
Professor of Soil Physics and Land Management at Wageningen University, the Netherlands. Recipient of Honorary Professorships at i) Deakin University, Australia, ii) the Institute of Soil and Water Conservation, Chinese Academy of Sciences, China, and iii) Moscow State University of Environmental Engineering, Russia.
I am a Research Associate III in the Center for Environmental Biotechnology (CEB) at the University of Tennessee (UT). My interests lay in uncovering microbial community structure and biodiversity of various extreme environments including deep subsurface permafrost, tundra soils, soils and sediments from polluted sites, hot springs, and animal/human microbiome. In my research I apply a variety of classical microbiological and high-throughput techniques, such as quantitative real time PCR, microarrays, hybridization, next generation sequencing, single cell genomics, metagenomics, metaproteomics, metatranscriptomics.
