Rodale Institute, a non-profit dedicated to pioneering organic farming through research and outreach, has announced that Dr. Kristine Nichols began July 7 as its new Chief Scientist.

Prior to joining the Institute, Dr. Nichols was a Research Soil Microbiologist with the USDA Agricultural Research Service for 11 years. Her professional achievements have focused on the impacts of cropping and grazing systems on soil microbiology, nutrient cycling, and soil aggregation to improve soil health and water quality. As Chief Scientist, Dr. Nichols will take the lead on all Rodale Institute research projects, act as the scientific voice for the Institute as she travels worldwide, and help create a vision for the future of food and farming.
