Daniel Schactman’s current research focus on the interaction s between plant roots and soil microbes and the impact those interactions have on plant performance in water and nitrogen limiting environments.

Prior to joining the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2014, Schactman was project lead and science Fellow at Monsanto where he worked on increasing the nitrogen use efficiency of maize. Previously, he was a principal investigator and full member at the Danforth Plant Science Center in St. Louis, Missouri. His research has led to seminal findings in the signal transduction networks controlling root response and adaptation to low nutrient conditions.

Schactman received is B.SC. in Agricultural Economics and M.SC. in Plant Physiology from the University of California, Davis and his Ph.D. from the Australian National University in Plant Physiology and Genetics.
