Title: Impact of laying hen manure applications on water quality under continuous corn – A long term study




Michelle Soupir graduated from the Biological and Agricultural Engineering Department at Kansas State University in 1999.  Following graduation she worked as an Environmental Engineer for Camp Dresser and McKee, Inc in Kansas City, Missouri on hazardous waste and groundwater remediation projects.  In August of 2001 she began a graduate program in the Biological Systems Engineering Department at Virginia Tech, completing her M.S. in 2003 and Ph.D. in 2008.  She joined the Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering Department as an Assistant Professor at Iowa State University in May 2008.  Her research and teaching program focuses on improving water quality. Dr. Soupir teaches courses on nonpoint source pollution control, design and evaluation of soil and water monitoring systems, water quality modeling, and engineering design. Her research program focuses on sustainable water systems with an emphasis on nonpoint source pollution control, watershed management, and water quality monitoring. Her research projects encompass multiple scales to answer basic and applied research questions regarding the occurrence, fate and transport of pathogens, pathogen indicators, nutrients, and contaminants of emerging environmental concern (CoEECs) such as antibiotics and antibiotic-resistant organisms to surface and groundwater systems. Findings from her work has implications to improve the water quality improvement plan development and implementation process, identify the impact of landuse practices on water quality, and develop management practices to reduce pollutant transport.

Dr. Soupir has been recognized for early achievement in research by the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and the College of Engineering at Iowa State University.  She received the New Holland Young Researcher Award in 2014 from the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineering.  In 2013 she received an Outstanding Recent Alumna award from the Biological Systems Engineering Department at Virginia Tech and in 2016 she was recognized by the College of Engineering at Kansas State University with a Professional Progress Award.  She has published 48 peer reviewed journal articles and has served as PI or co-PI on over $6 million in externally funded grants.

Dr. Soupir began working on the long term study funded by the Iowa Egg Council when she joined the faculty at Iowa State University in 2008.  Since then she has co-authored 4 publications with the project PI Ramesh Kanwar and she currently manages the project.
