UD's Jaisi wins NSF Career Award for research on phosphorus in soil
Much like criminal forensic scientists use fingerprints to identify guilty parties at crime scenes, the University of Delaware's Deb Jaisi utilizes isotopic fingerprinting technology to locate the sources of phosphorus compounds and studies the degraded products they leave behind in soil and water. Jaisi has now received a prestigious National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development Award to further his source tracking research, looking specifically at phytate, the most common organic phosphorus in soils.
