Aundrea Asbell

Soils Lab Technician

Aundrea Asbell is the soil lab technician for the Regenerative Agriculture Demonstration (RAD) lab(opens in new window). Prior to joining the Center for Regenerative Agriculture (CRA), Aundrea studied environmental horticulture and natural resources management at Butte College. Her professional experience includes both research lab management and environmental consulting.

As a staff research associate at UC Berkeley, she was responsible for the overall functioning of an environmental toxicology lab, from maintaining experiments to collecting field samples, from culturing test organisms to performing chemical extractions, all in an effort to analyze for and detect pyrethroid insecticides carried by stormwater into surface waters. As a consultant, Aundrea's experiences have been varied. As a newly-minted college grad turned invertebrate ecologist she conducted surveys for threatened and endangered vernal pool shrimp species, specializing in the taxonomy of benthic macroinvertebrates collected as part of stream bioassessments.

After concluding her time at UC Berkeley, she returned to consulting, this time as a wildlife biologist donning a hard hat and yellow vest to serve as lead biological monitor for a major levee project along the Feather River. Her professional interests are habitat management and ecological restoration.
