Chikae Tatsumi, PhD
Postdoctoral Research Fellow
Boston University College of Arts and Sciences

Chikae is a postdoctoral researcher interested in soil microbial communities and their function of biogeochemical cycling under the effect of human activties, such as urbanization and chemical pollution, and how to improve these damaged functions. Shhe earned a Ph.D. degree from Kyoto University, Japan, where she studied the relationship between dominant mycorrhizal type (ectomycorrhizal vs. arbuscular mycorrhizal) and soil N-cycling in dryland forests.vOther than the research, Chikae likes going to the museum and theaters, hiking and running, and playing video games. Her favorite mushroom is Astraeus hygrometricus (earthstar fungi).
