The Soil Health Partnership (SHP) is pleased to introduce Dr. Carrie Roever as the new Data Manager.

Dr. Roever’s primary responsibility will be to assist in organizing and finding efficiencies in the SHP data. “I enjoy assembling the puzzle that is involved with figuring out data and looking for efficiencies. I’m eager to dig into SHP’s data and make sense of how it all fits together,” she commented.

Dr. Roever completed her bachelor’s degree at Indiana State University, her master's degree at University of Alberta and her doctorate at University of Pretoria. Her degrees are in wildlife biology, looking at habitat selection.

After her doctorate, Dr. Roever went to Oregon State University where she studied cattle movement across the landscape during drought. Dr. Roever then accepted a Data Manager position at the University of Idaho through a grant with EPSCoR, where she helped to train and educate researchers on how to manage data and ensure compliance with state and federal laws.

“We are eager to have Dr. Roever join our staff and help us better organize our rich dataset. She will be working closely with our team as we work to improve how we collect, manage, and integrate data to serve SHP farmers and advance our research goals,” said SHP Lead Scientist Dr. Maria Bowman.
