MJC’s Modesto Area Partners In Science (MAPS) kicks off it’s monthly, Spring semester speaker series with Dr. Maya Almaraz on January 24 @ 7:30 pm at MJC West Campus, in Sierra Hall 132. Dr. Almaraz is currently the Program Manager at the UC Davis working Lands Innovation Center.
MJC is proud to welcome Dr. Almaraz for the first time to speak on a topic that directly affects our community. She will be sharing how the agricultural use of fertilizers has dramatically increased the amount of fixed nitrogen cycling through our biosphere.
Dr. Almaraz expressed: “My research focuses on how alterations to the nitrogen cycle interact with climate and land-use change to impact both environmental and human health. I am delighted to share these findings with the Modesto community.”
Since 1990 the MAPS lecture series has fostered science education in our community for youths through adults. Once a month during the academic year, MAPS offers stimulating free science programming, bringing educators and local citizens into contact with science and mind expanding ideas.
