Postdoctoral Research Associate
University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (UIUC)
Dr. Sible earned his bachelor’s, master’s and doctorate degrees from UIUC. Through an internship with an agricultural chemical company, Dr. Sible discovered how rewarding agronomic research is and decided to pursue a graduate degree. His studies focused on the categorization and implementation of biological products for soybean and corn production systems. This path led him to study with Dr. Fred Below in the UIUC Crop Physiology Laboratory where they study management practices and factors to optimize soybean and corn yields.
As a postdoctoral researcher, he helps conceptualize, implement and manage research studies for the Crop Physiology program; trains undergraduate and graduate students; and co-advises the Field and Furrow organization.
Dr. Sible enjoys walking his dogs … or having them walk him! And if you need a tuba player, give him a call – he’s a lifetime brass player. He performed through his college years with the athletic bands and Marching Illini. While tuba is his instrument of choice, he can also pick up trumpet and trombone with a little practice!
