Eric Slessarev

I study soil and its role in terrestrial ecosystems. I am currently a research scientist in the Environmental Isotope Systems Group at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. My research is guided by two major objectives: (1) understanding how soil properties develop in different ecological contexts, and how they are expressed at the global scale; and (2) understanding how the soil environment governs belowground ecology and influences carbon and nutrient cycling. In addition to these fundamental research objectives, I evaluate soil-based climate change mitigation strategies.

In July 2023 I will be joining the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Yale University as an Assistant Professor affiliated with the Yale Center for Natural Carbon Capture. Please get in contact with me if you are interested in joining my lab.
