Meghan Buckley started with the Soil and Waste Resources program at the University of Wisconsin at Stevens Point in 2008, immediately following completion of her doctoral degree.
Dr. Buckley received her Ph.D. from Kansas State University specializing in the management of soil water resources. She also received her M.S degree from Kansas State University while her B.S. degrees in Agronomy and International Agriculture were obtained at Iowa State University. The strong interest in agricultural aspects of soil science come from growing up on a dairy farm in upstate New York.

Previous projects have looked at improving cropland water management including reducing surface runoff, regulating stored water, and modeling water distribution with HYDRUS 1-D and Rosetta. Work at UWSP has been diverse, including a carbon sequestration study on restored wetlands and a study on the effects of application of waste gypsum to agricultural land for the reduction of phosphorus losses in runoff.

I spend my free time reading, gardening, or playing with our dogs, Rubicon and Dayton.
