Biography and Education

Biography

Ignacio A. Ciampitti was born in Buenos Aires City, in Argentina. After high school, he attended the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina, where he received the Agricultural Engineer degree. During the previous study, Ignacio, worked in a thesis project related to the topic of nitrous oxide emissions from soybean crops.

During his time pursuing a Ph.D. program at Purdue University, Ignacio worked as a research assistant, and was actively involved in the graduate students’ representatives committee. Ignacio received several honors among them, Gamma Sigma Delta Professional Award, M.O. Pence Memorial Scholarship, Gerald O. Mott Award, Bilsland Dissertation Fellowship, Outstanding Ph.D. Student in Research Award, George D. Scarseth Scholarship, and the International Scholar Award from IPNI.

Currently, he is an Associate Editor for the Agronomy Journal, and he is also actively involved in the reviewing process for several International Journals (i.e. Agronomy Journal, Crop Science, Field Crops Research, SSSAJ and Plant and Soil). He is also an active member of the Crop Science Society of America, American Society of Agronomy, the Soil Science Society of America, Gamma Sigma Delta and the Argentinian Soil Science Association.

Ignacio married Gloria in 2007 and they have two children, Josefina (2) and Jeremías (4), and one more coming on the way very soon. For recreation, Ignacio enjoys time spent with family and friends, the outdoors and cooking.
