His research focuses on the feedbacks between ecosystem management options (tillage, cover cropping, green manuring, sustainable farming, and grazing), global change (elevated CO2 and climate change), and biogeochemical cycling. (Visit the Six lab homepage for more on this research.)

Six is one of 54 scientists from University of California campuses to receive the honor. They were among the new 503 AAAS members selected by colleagues in their disciplines to be honored this year for “efforts toward advancing science applications that are deemed scientifically or socially distinguished.”
