About Myrna Simpson

Myrna has a BSc and PhD from the University of Alberta and is currently a Professor of Environmental Chemistry at the University of Toronto. She is also the Associate Director of the Environmental NMR Centre. Myrna is an expert in the molecular biogeochemistry of natural organic matter in soils, sediments and water. Through her work, she has demonstrated that specific organic matter compounds respond uniquely to changes in climate, inputs and removals, and different management practices.

“Soil organic matter is a major part of soil health and sustainable agriculture.”
