Wendy Taheri, PhD. - Is a microbial ecologist who is transforming the world of agriculture by developing microbebased, sustainable solutions to replace and reduce the plethora of toxic chemicals and environmentally-damaging practices currently used in conventional agriculture. Her research focuses on harnessing the power of Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi (AMF) and other beneficial microbes; and has broad-ranging, practical applications.

John is a post-doctoral research associate at Penn State University and will soon join Cornell as an Assistant Professor at Geneva.
