Associate Research Scientist
Pamila’s career in the agricultural research industry began during her undergrad as a laboratory technician with the Agricultural Biosystem and Engineering Department at Iowa State University. Her projects focused on analyzing water and environmental needs on surrounding farmland with conservation and land management practices. After Pamila earned her B.S. in Environmental Science from ISU, she assisted with the design and construction of a 5 acre hops trellis where she gained experience with plant handling and nutrient management. Pamila then moved on to a Research Associate position with Corteva Agriscience, formally known as DowDuPont Pioneer, in their Nucleic Acid Characterization Laboratory. While there she optimized crop plant tissue handling and DNA extraction protocols for high throughput qPCR.
