Kenzo Esquivel

PhD Student

Kenzo is a PhD student in ESPM. He is interested in the relationship between biodiversity conservation and ecosystem services in and across agricultural landscapes and broadly how we can use this knowledge to create sustainable and productive agricultural systems. Using a combination of field work, and ecological modeling, he plans to look at how agroecological diversification practices impact soil microbial diversity, and how this diversity relates to key ecosystem services. Prior to Berkeley, Kenzo received an MS in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from the University of Michigan, and a BS in Environmental and Geophysical Science from the University of Chicago.
