Chris Kucharik

kucharikLChris Kucharik is an assistant professor of agronomy and a researcher for the Wisconsin Bioenergy Initiative. He will be a panelist at the “Measuring Sustainability” session at the 2011 Wisconsin Bioenergy Summit on Oct. 6.

Kucharik’s bioenergy expertise centers around integrating field observations and numerical ecosystem models of bioenergy cropping systems to understand the influence of a changing climate and land management on ecosystem services provided by agricultural landscapes, specifically: carbon sequestration, water quality and nitrate export, and how plant productivity is impacted by climate, increasing CO2, and farmer management.
