Joe Storlien

Joe Storlien began teaching at CSB/SJU in the fall of 2014. Growing up in a small farming community in southwestern Minnesota gave him an early connection to his interest in environmental issues in agriculture. His early academic work focused on nutrient cycling and sustainable agriculture. His more recent work involves sustainable bioenergy/biofuel crop production, carbon cycling, soil trace gas emissions, and measuring human impact on drivers of global climate change. He can be found biking, fishing, gardening, and attending live music performances in his free time.
