Princess Adjei-Frimpong is a PhD BHEARD Scholar in the Department of Plant, Soil and Microbial Sciences, where she majors in Crop and Soil Sciences. Her overall research falls in the area of sustainable agriculture with focus on cropping systems and plant/soil water relations. Currently, her research is focused on understanding soil moisture dynamics in a sorghum-pigeonpea cropping systems in Ghana and Mali.
She also has interest in using APSIM, a crop system model to help understand and predict the impact of soil, management, and climate on crop yield and water use. Prior to graduate school in Michigan, she worked with the International Institute for Tropical Agriculture (IITA) as a research assistant and the Ministry of Food and Agriculture (MoFA) as a municipal crops officer in Ghana, where she developed keen interest in working with smallholder farmers. She has a bachelor’s degree in Agriculture and a master’s degree in Crop Science, both from the University of Ghana, Legon.
