About Samantha Earl-Goulet
Samantha completed her Bachelor of Science majoring in Environmental Science at Lincoln University in New Zealand where she researched the effect diverse pastures had on nitrous oxide emission from cattle urine patches. Growing up in New Zealand where the topic of dairy farming and water quality is a contentious issue led to Samantha developing an interest in how to balance environmental and economic sustainability in agriculture. Samantha is entering into her first year in a Masters of Science where she will be focusing her research on the impact of cover crops and crop diversification on greenhouse gas emissions. After her studies, Samantha hopes to continue to research the potential mitigation options for agricultural emissions and how environmental policy can be created to support farmers in achieving economic and environmental sustainability. In the meantime you are likely to find her in close vicinity to some lysimeters, wandering around a forest, or admiring a soil profile.
