Miller Receives Early Achievement in Research Award
Bradley Miller, assistant professor in agronomy, is the recipient of the Early Achievement in Research Award from the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at Iowa State University. His research examines spatial variations in environmental processes that affect soil properties. He studies how those variations impact environmental quality and sustainable crop production. Miller oversees the department’s Geospatial Laboratory for Soil Informatics, advises graduate students and teaches geospatial technologies and digital soil mapping. With his help, agronomy is also offering a new soil science certificate.
In 2018, Miller earned international recognition for his achievements in bridging historical understanding of soil geography with modern geospatial technologies. He was awarded the Dan Yaalon Young Scientist Medal by the International Union of Soil Sciences.
