Angela Leon is a first-year PhD student in Agronomy. During her first Master program, her research was focused on the relationship between quality and quantity of carbon stocks and the floristic composition in High Andean wetlands, as well as the estimation of the productive conditions for grazing of these wetlands. Furthermore, for her second M.Sc. Thesis, she screened and optimized low-cost lignosulfonates as legume and hay preservatives to decrease losses of dry matter and nutritive value due to spoilage. For her PhD Thesis, she is working under the supervision of Dr. Randy Jackson. Angela wants to focus her research on the effects of intensive grazing on the nutritional value and biomass of forage, soil quality, and green gas emissions.
