Whittier College junior Emily Baeza Interviews Dr. James Galloway, alumnus from the class of 1966. Galloway has been called both a "pioneer and an exceptional leader"on global biogeochemical issues focusing on documenting and understanding the massive changes that are occurring in the global nitrogen cycle both through his own research as well as fostering a major international effort. Most recently, Galloway and his colleagues at the University of Virginia, University of Maryland, and the Netherlands have created a web-based calculator that measures an individual's impact on the nitrogen cycle according to factors such as diet and transportation choices. The calculator, launched in February 2011, is a project of the International Nitrogen Initiative (INI), a global network of scientists who share research and data on the nitrogen dilemma. Galloway was the founding chair of INI.
