Lindsey joined the lab in the fall of 2012 after completing a B.S. in Environmental Management at the
University of Tennessee at Martin. Her general research interests include evaluating soil microbial
communities in pasture ecosystems and responses to global climate change. For her M.S. research, Lindsey
investigated the seasonal responses of soil microbes and enzyme activities in a hay-managed grassland to
predicted increases in temperature and precipitation as part of the UK Climate Change Project. Lindsey
successfully defended her M.S. thesis in July 2012, and is now working on her doctorate in the lab.
