The Seyfferth Lab is housed in the newly-renovated Worrilow Hall within the Department of Plant and Soil Sciences in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources at the University of Delaware. In the Seyfferth Lab, we use basic science to understand and solve environmental problems. We conduct interdisciplinary research that intersects soil sciences, plant sciences, ecosystem sciences, chemical sciences, biological sciences, and engineering to understand elemental cycling in the environment and impacts on society. Our projects span from small-scale mineral-microbe-plant interactions to large-scale ecosystem processes with focus on contaminants, nutrients, and greenhouse gases. We also promote inclusion and diversity, participate in outreach, and strive to create a welcoming environment for everyone.
