About Olivia Wallace

Olivia was born and raised in Brampton, Ontario but has called Guelph home for the past few years while completing her undergrad. With one semester left of her degree in Biological Sciences, Olivia is thrilled to be spending the summer with the agrometeorology lab. When she’s not outside doing fieldwork, you can find her in the lab building and testing a minirhizotron to image cover crop roots. Olivia became interested in agriculture after watching a documentary called Kiss the Ground which opened her eyes to soil as a solution to climate change and piqued her interest in Dr. Wagner-Riddle’s lab. Upon graduating, Olivia would love to spend a couple of years travelling and working abroad in the agricultural industry in Australia or New Zealand. Beyond her passion for environmental science, Olivia is a huge history buff and enjoys reading about fierce women both past and present!
